For some months now, I follow the Ted Forbes’s Youtube channel “The Art of Photography“. Especially I follow with great interest the series of assignments and I have decided to do the first one, which it’s about variations:
I’ll take that as a kind of project “10 x ‘Something’“.
When I finished to see the video I was at home, sitting on my sofa, I had in front of me a table with a vase of Statice and a I remembered that some days ago I took a photo of this flowers with my little camera X100, so that was my first photo…
The rest was made with my Fuji X-T1, I changed the camera because I thought that I would have more possibilities with the zoom 18-55.
- Think, think, think, please, think before to take the photography (composition, see the lines, frame, lens, light…)
- Think, again, about little details (such as clean the dust of the vase…)
- It’s not necessary to do the 10 photos in 10 minutes, please, take your time.
- I was at home ¿why I didn’t use the tripod or change the lens? I didn’t think! (remember first item)
¿Am I glad with the result?
Of course, not, but I enjoyed it.
Of all of them I have chosen the first made with my X100, I like his composition, color, unfocused vase; and the last one because it’s difference and the black and white helps to highlight the small branch without flowers.
Following Ted Forbes’s advice I will print the photos for my first sketchbook but I need a little more time to do it.
