For the practical assignment of unit 2 for my photography diploma I had to take photos using the different modes of the camera. Really to see the constraints of letting the camera do all the work and not choosing yourself what is required. So it was action in action mode, portrait in portrait mode, landscape in landscape mode and macro in macro mode.
Haven’t written a blog in over two weeks, haven’t really felt inspired to take photos of anything or to write about anything. However wanted that to change again and as with most things it is getting started which is the hard bit.
For ages I have wanted to cycle from Claonaig to Clachan and got my chance on Wednesday. Thoroughly enjoyed it as well.
Since being signed off work it is very easy to get fixated on work and all the questions and decisions going round in my head to do with that. What I need to also remember that while I am not at work it opens up opportunities that I wouldn’t have got if I had been at work. One of those is getting the chance to see areas of Scotland that I haven’t been to before.
On Sunday myself, Kat, Morag ( Kat’s Mum) and Maia went for a hill walk on Beinn Chabhair but as you might have guessed from the blog title we didn’t manage to get to the top. Due to various factors we got to about an hour away from the summit and had to turn round.
Be born, go to nursery, go to primary school, go to secondary school, go to uni, go to job, go to next job and next job and next job and then ……………………………………………………………..
Started doing some more of the online photography course over the past couple of days and got to my first assignment which was to submit a photo taken in manual mode.
