This was my submission on Monday for the texture assignment. I think it went over okay. Class covered composition and the rule of thirds. If you are interested in learning more about those, let me know and I will post on it.
I think I hurt the instructor's feelings. He takes us outside at the beginning of class to take pictures. First, let me say, I love taking pictures, but when it's a subject I really don't care about, I get bored easily. I mean really, I can only take a picture of a classmate so many times. I take a couple pictures, get the concept he is trying to teach and want to move on. So, Monday we were outside learning how to do a silhouette. Cool, got it. Then I was just standing there. He asked, "Why aren't to taking pictures?" I responded, "What's the purpose?" If you could have only seen his face. Don't think he was expecting that response.
Okay, so maybe that was a little harsh. But come on. I wasn't the only one just standing there. About an hour later, he let us take a short break. As I was walking out of the classroom behind him, he stopped me and said he needed to ask me something. "Do you not like my class?" he asked. "Are you not enjoying it? Cause the looks on your face during class sometimes seem to say you're not caring much for it." So I guess my "I'm bored, let's move on look" is not so subtle. I told him that I liked his class very much and he was doing fine. I told the husband I should have just told him, "Dude, I'm just a B****. It's nothing against you." But I guess that would have really thrown him for a loop!
So now that I have crushed the instructor's confidence, I am off to work on the next assignment. We are to compose a picture with "leading lines". I have an idea of what I want to do, now if only I can get it to turn out. Wish me luck!
