In college this evening we all looked through our photos and pick out the best ones to print out to put up on a dispaly board in college. Next week we are going to look at 120 Black and White film and we are going to use this on our environmental portrait. Roger also showed us how we could display our work in the books we are buying, to record everything we do this year.
I sat in on another yoga class today for the week in the life of, I used my Fuji x100 again for the majority of the session. I also took along my Sony alpha with a Lensbaby Scout fisheye lens to get some wide angles of the class. Here are some of the shots from today. The classes are on 4 days a week and each night is a different style of Yoga. http://www.restingbuddha.co.uk
For my week in a life project I have asked a Yoga teacher Roanna if I could take pictures of her and the different classes she teaches. Tonight will be the 1st one, I have never been in or seen a yoga class, so not sure what to expect. Im going to use my Fuji x100 as I know its good under low light and I can turn all sound off not to distract the class when I'm taking shots. The Yoga classes are run by Roanna Harstad who is the senior teacher and trainer at Resting Buddha you can check her website out here
individually Roger reviewed the pictures we took last week and gave us pointers and feedback on each shot.
We also started to edit the photos and start to lay them out ready for putting into our workbooks.
Tonight we divided into 2 small groups, Roger had arranged for us to take photos of 2 different classes the 1st one was silver smith and the 2nd was sowing. In our small groups we had to be a fly on the wall and interact with the people we were taking photos of. We had to ask each person if they minded having their photo taken, no one did. This was to take us out of our comfort zone and get us talking to our subjects and to build our confidence. Very good night.
