Let me know what you think. These are photos I used to illustrate photo taking strategies in my class. We also had fun listing the  common mistakes made by amateur. FullSizeRender   What would you say are the common mistakes? Lens and Pens

    1. Those do look like magic slippers or something.. I looked for the child that may have left them.
      You mean the play of color on the slipper photo, right?
      Thanks for the feedback
      Happy Monday.

  1. I just love your first image. It looks like a Japanese painting. I will be starting up a photography group at the end of next month – just for women to learn about their phones and other cameras so your list is great.

    1. We are having a great time in my class. I have been thinking about putting some more lesson and examples for my students on a separate blog. I’ll make sure I let you know. Oh glad you like the first one. I’ll share the app it’s from next week. Maybe 😉

  2. My favourites are the first two. I like how the first photo takes my eyes upward. In the second photo, I get the sense that the owner is coming back for the shoes, but when she’s ready to do so. Maybe she took them off because she wanted to walk barefoot on the ground, or to splash about in water, if there’s a stream or river nearby.

    All in all, good shots!

  3. I often forget to check where the primary light source is and use it to my advantage. The first photo is an example of my problem. Taking photos of birds in the early morning light, they are almost impossible to see their bright colours. Your class sounds like fun, and your photos here are signs of your increasing knowledge. Love the final one! Captured this transient moment so well, Carol. But the pink slippers spark my imagination!

    1. Okay I have to come clean about the birds. They are from a new App I was playing with Enlight. I felt like I was painting with birds. I did photograph the birds that were one my header all winter.
      The class is fun I learn as I teach. I’ll put more lessons as I go.
      Thanks for all your great thoughts.
