Photography-along Lesson #1: Assigment #1

I feel kinda weird posting about the photography-along since no one decided to join me *sniff* Maybe I should change the name to photography-alone. I know lame, right! I'm pretty sure my SIL will join me when she gets her modem working though... and I'm still hoping to inspire a few of you to bust out your cameras and manuals and join me in the near future!

So for Lesson #1 over on morgueFile there are 2 assignments.

The first is to take some abstract photos using some of the basic composition rules outlined: getting in close, the rule of thirds, triangles, frame within a frame, leading lines and a few others.

So here are some pictures I have taken recently trying to implement my new found knowledge.



So this is a close up of a fence with another fence behind it. I think most of the lines fall on the "thirds" of the frame.



Here's a landscape shot where I tried to place the bottom of the building along the "rule of thirds" horizon line.


Here's my favorite picture so far. I think that the principle of "leading lines" is used here and I tried to place the center of the wagon wheel at an intersection of the" rule of thirds".


Well that's all for now!

Ooh! I really like the wheel... you're inspiring me to start this. I might get some time this weekend. I'm not promising, but I might just join you on this photo-along!
