I think it’s safe to say, I’m not a good photographer (or model for that matter!). When I heard about Emma Davies’ photography course, I jumped at it. So this is what I’ve covered so far on Emma’s course.
I decided that as I already photograph flowers that catch my eye, this would be my theme for 2016 and hopefully at the end I will have gorgeous collage to share.
For the first exercise, Emma advises not to stick to the theme as it’s about Exposure. Below are some experiments I did with my Panasonic Lumix. Emma suggests taking pictures of white on white and black on black.
White on White
I don’t think the lesson twigged for me with the white on white. I started to see something with the black on black – helped that I turned the flash off!
Black on Black
I bought some fabric yesterday and wanted to take a picture of it to share on Instagram. I used my phone (Samsung A3) for these photos and played with the flash settings: no flash, auto flash, flash.
Opinions and feedback welcome – this is a learning curve for me so please do leave constructive criticism in the comments.
