And it was also, I’ll admit, about forcing me to switch the camera to manual mode.
Here’s just a few of my notes. Whilst I know some of this already, there was definitely a bit of an “aha” moment where it all comes together.
Oh, and yes, someone had apparently swapped my normal pen with a red pencil. It made me feel very much like a stay-at-home-mum out on excursion for the day. 🙂
The course focused on improving technique rather than taking the most beautiful photos. We were intentionally given a narrow subject range (a forsaken looking garden bed), so that we weren’t too distracted by the glitz of the harbour.
The first challenge was to take several different shots of the same subject. Here is my study of a lilli pilli fruit.
Oh, and I had a little visitor too…

PS: Just FYI in case you are interested, this photography course was run by Remember Forever. But this is not a sponsored post – I ‘paid’ for the course using a Red Balloon voucher I’d won from a Love, Life and Hiccups competition (thanks Sonia!). Remember Forever had no idea that I blog when I did the course.
