Photography is a lot of work! I really enjoyed learning the process and I took over a hundred photos to get six shots.
I drove around my town looking for ordinary objects that had the possibility to become great pictures. My indoor photography was the must fun, where I staged a scene and used afternoon natural light. For the Foreground and background I took a decorative pumpkin and placed by a tree in my yard. I focused on the pumpkin and then on the tree while trying to keep the rule of thirds. My rule of thirds shot was taken at my neighbor’s house where she has had the cutest bird house for years. My leading shot was random mailboxes on a street where anyone can walk into the frame.
Since I am an amateur I had to watch a lot of tutorials and even used Lyndia.com for extra insight to using Lightroom, where I edited, sized and watermarked them. I took advantage of some of the auto features but also used the warming feature on my indoor shot and leading shot, then cool on the outdoor shot. I also used clarity and increased exposure on my lead room shot to enhance the image of the mailboxes.
