I'm so far behind on this project that I've all but given up on it. I see the assignments go by on my calendar, and I have plenty of ideas for things I'd like to photograph for them, but my ideas are becoming more ambitious, and I can't find the time necessary to set up and capture them the way I'd want to.
Instead, I'm trying to take pictures when I can and pay more attention to framing and lighting as I go. I figure that if I concentrate on taking better pictures with the time and equipment I have, I'll be more likely to know how to take advantage of a better camera once I make the decision to upgrade.
Not long ago I went back to the tobacco fields to take the photos for the "Looking In" assignment. The seedlings were in the ground and it was a bright and perfect day.
I did fiddle with the contrast a bit, but for the most part, the photo is SOOC.
I had a coupon and had the photo printed on canvas, and it looks nice sitting here in the office. I plan to go back to the tobacco fields periodically during the growing season and I'll have the best shots printed up and scattered throughout the office.
