Photography Class--Week 1

I'm taking a great photography class at BetterPhoto.com....Photography Kids and it's awesome. The assignments are fun and I'm learning tons. The instructor is great too. Her critiques are very helpful and she answers all kinds of questions in the forums. I'm definitely taking more classes there in the future. It works with my schedule so much better than a live class.

The first week's assignment was to shoot 3 sets of before and after shots. The before had to have a child looking away from the camera and not smiling. The after had to have the child looking into the camera and really smiling...connecting with the camera/photographer. It wasn't nearly as easy as I thought it would be.

Here are my before and afters.

My critique was pretty good and the first picture of Alex made her Picture of the Week. (She chooses her favorites, so it's not just mine.)

And yeah, it's been far too long since I updated, but I decided to just start now instead of trying to play catch up. It's too overwhelming so I think if I start fresh now maybe I'll be able to keep up better. (You've heard that before, right?) LOL
