Pain – Squashed

Pain - Squashed

One of the ideas that came out of the photography class I took from Richard Ritter at Peters Valley Craft Center was to list topics that can be used when going out for a walk. These could include: circles, rectangles, pain, sadness, static, dynamic, etc. You cut them up into cards and put them in a bowl. I selected “Pain” today. Here is one of the photos I took. I’d appreciate your critical review of this and all my photos.

Water

As I mentioned earlier, I’ve been taking a photography class at Peters Valley Craft Center taught by Richard Ritter. Today’s assignment was to take photos of water. I found a rock to sit on, put my Canon D600 on a tripod set low to the water and set to Live View Mode so I could see the water through the LCD monitor. I then set the aperture and then changed the speed and ISO settings with each picture. This photo was taken at f 6.3, 1/1000 at 800 ISO. This is the first time that I took time to play with the various modes. This was particularly true of manual.

I took this photo at Peters Valley Crafts Center where my wife, Jane Ingram Allen is teaching a class in sculptural paper making. I’m taking a photography class taught by Richard Ritter with a focus on composition. Although this was not part of an assignment I could not miss the opportunity of taking the photo with so many highlights.
