Final Critique

Tomorrow is my last day in Digital Photo 2. I had such a wonderful time and learned so much in the class. I really hope that the four of us can be in a class together with Nick as our instructor. I learned so much from Nick and hope to continue to learn more and I hope to start a portfolio and sharing more photos.

Our assignment was to continue with our personal vision series. My personal vision is to take photos of kids growing up. Doesn't sound like much, but I don't want the "typical" posed photos to reflect upon. Don't get me wrong, I like looking at old photographs and hearing stories about the scene. But I want a different view of what their favorite things are and new experiences. I want to remember the emotion and also have someone looking at the photo for the first time to feel the emotion as well. So here is what I am turning in tomorrow.

Lauryn got a digital camera last week and has been proudly taking pictures. She has been so gitty with delight and has taken quite a few photos, some of them pretty good.

I also had to photograph something that most people would not notice or stop to reflect upon.

For me, when I go to Moab, Utah it is a time to reflect on my life. Sitting in the beautiful canyons that surround Moab gives you a little perspective on life. The experience is different to different people in different ways. As I was sitting there one afternoon I was watching these clouds come over head. They traveled through pretty quick, but for a couple of hours. I figured that it was a sign they wanted to be noticed so I took a picture.

You certainly got the emotion of Lauryn and her joy with her new camera! Cool clouds too. Always looking forward to more pictures!
