My favorite still life from this part of the lessonThis week's lesson in Kim Klassen's Be Still 52 class included a wealth of technical information to get a dreamy feel in your still life photographs. A lot of this was a good review for me. I've taken all my photographs for this class so far using my fixed 50mm lens and shooting to give the depth of field I wanted.
Deconstructed faded hydrangea blossomI did learn a new trick about where (and why) my camera focuses in aperture priority mode.
I kindof like the second one better because of the light and color storyAnd I unintentionally created a really nice comparison about the lighting inside and outside my home. These two photographs with very similar composition were taken within a few minutes of each other. One taken inside (door open, on the floor) and one taken 3 feet away (outside on the deck railing). Such a different feel (partly from the background and perspective, but also from the light).
