1st Challenge: Take a picture of bananas
2nd Challenge: Take a picture of our blooming rose with the rose being the brightest object.
3rd Challenge: Decide beforehand what I want in focus and then take the picture. Here are a couple of examples. And, as a bonus, you get to see Tom's moustache.
This was an accident lesson on frontal light, but if I ever take some before and after pictures or Tom, I know how to make the after picture look really good--no blemishes anywhere.
These next four I just liked.
I really am enjoying what I'm learning, and if you are a photographer and have suggestions (hint hint J), please do so I'd love to hear them.
