Photography class

I'm working on my first assignment. I'm probably over thinking it, but it's got me stumped a bit. After my first class, when I realized how "easy" it was going to be, I told myself I would work above and beyond what was expected so it would be challenging to me, and help me learn and grow as a photographer more. Someone actually called me a photographer the other day, and it shocked me. I don't think I am - yet. Some day though! I have a LOT to learn.

So, our first assignment is to shoot a roll (yes, film!!! And only black and white at that!) with shadow and/or reflection as our subject. I could easily go shoot 36 pictures of just about anything, but I wouldn't be happy. I don't want to "waste" the film, and the time developing and processing, just to come away with something that I would never use.

This is what I came up with today. Getting Eric to sit was a pain in the butt. He's been sick, and whiny, and totally like a typical sick baby, er, guy. But since he loves me, and I threatened him a bit, he did what I wanted, and angled his head the way I told him so his precious motorcycle reflected in his glasses.

I'm cheating a little, and taking the pictures I want first with my digital, getting everything the way I want it, and then with the film camera. This was my first (and so far only) picture for shadow and reflection.

That photo is absolutely awesome!!! I am soooo impressed by your creativity! Someday, you'll get to teach me, but I'll never be as dedicated as you are.
