I love looking at beautiful pictures and the stories they tell and like most people I always try to take captivating pictures often with no luck! I was delighted to come across Raj’s blog! I love his photography lessons- I think they are well explained and most importantly it all makes sense for a beginner like me 🙂
Having followed Raj’s blog for a while, I have been a little intimidated to post some of the pictures I have taken for the lessons but here goes!
I’m going right back to basics – lesson number 2 https://wordpress.com/read/feeds/64201002/posts/1524356374which has really emphasised the purpose behind a picture, I now find myself taking a minute to really think about what I would like to express before clicking which has two bonus points- firstly I don’t have to delete as many pictures and secondly it gives me a chance to think of the settings!
During my last holiday in August I really started to consider the outcome of my photos, as I was watching the sunset with my daughter I felt so peaceful and thankful- the below picture I really tried to capture these emotions.
In the second picture I caught my daughter having a moment to herself and it just made me wonder- at what age do we start really appreciating the world and our surroundings? When do we become aware of what goes on in the world? And as parents how do we enable our children to have balanced views? Therefore, with this picture I hoped to capture the beauty of childhood and the transition that we start to make from knowing very little about the world and its beauty to becoming aware of it.
