I started a basic photography class that is offered by the community college recently so I can learn to get out of the auto+ feature on my Sony @65. By the description it seemed like it was going to be extremely basic and boring class but I took the leap of faith and enrolled. I think this will be anything but boring, the instructor is very energetic.
On the first day the instructor assigned 3 homework assignments:
1-Take 3 pictures of anything in the following views birdseye, wormseye and standard.
2-Select a picture from a magazine or the internet and recreate it (that’s going to be fun).
3-Take a picture of myself and it does not have to be a portrait (I hate my pictures so I was glad to hear that it does not have to be a portrait.
Here are the initial results for assignment 1, this may change when I finally turn in the assignment.
