I come from a photography background, and so I loved doing this assignment! Anything that gives me a chance to explore around me through my camera and spend time outside is wonderful. It has been pretty gloomy and gray weather the past few days, and so I tried to work with it. The sky in the outdoor shot shows you exactly what I am talking about. For the foreground and background, I choose to highlight the fall leaves and the abandoned couch. To accomplish this shot, I was laying on the ground with my camera nearly touching the ground. Instead of re-composing for the second shot, I metered in a different spot to get the depth that I desired. For the rule of thirds image, I chose to use the browns, reds and oranges of fall and line up the bird feeder and the pumpkins on those third intersections.

For the indoor shot, I used a stool I have near a window and just used the natural light. I had to lower my shutter speed to 1/15 and hold still to get the pumpkin in focus and to allow enough light in. For the lead room composition, I didn’t have a human subject to work with. Instead I chose to use a tomato growing on our porch. The close focus and directions of the vines help lead your eye in towards the image, as if the tomato is facing that way.
