PHOTO DAY 12: Architecture

Brief:  Study architectural forms, and also train your eye to look for shots that will translate well in black and white.

Finally the sun came out and the wind died down (well almost), so it was completely the wrong time to be driving about looking for fancy buildings to take photos of.  I needed to do some catching up in the garden. So as I was heading out to the garden thinking there was no architecture in such an organic environment, my eye was drawn to the shadows on the front of my shed. I had never noticed how interesting they looked before.  This could be because it has been a long time since we saw sunshine, or it is part of this eye training to see the photogenic in the ordinary.  Either way, I got a great black and white shot once I found I had a black and white setting on my camera.

My garden shed looks so classy like this. I helped build it you know.

    1. Thanks Kaye. Deciding to do this course was a really good idea. I am learning so much and having a lot of fun with it too, trying to keep it in line with my blog so I don’t suddenly seem to have gone off track.
      Cheers Sarah : o )

    1. Hi Fran. I know – there are buttons and dooferies that do things! My camera manual has 250 pages so goodness knows what other miracles and wonders it is capable of!
      This is a great wordpress course – it doesn’t take up much time at all and the learning is awesome – you should do it next time if it is something that catches your fancy. Cheers Sarah : o )

      1. I have a point and click with extra features. I try to do justice to things but often fall flat on my face. Steve wants a new Nikon for his 50th next year and is going to hand over his Canon to me so I guess that means I am going to have to learn how to fiddle with buttons and ISO’s etc. Thank goodness for photoshop! 😉
