It's photo class night!

7pm cannot come fast enough...

Class #2 tonight, we get to learn about camera control and basic composition (ie: make sure the subject is in FRONT of you!) AND I have a huge assignment for next week that includes taking 17 pictures and having them printed.

17 pictures....that means like 1000 tries to get them all....

Not only do I need 17 pictures, they are all different compositions. For example...2 shots of the horizon emphasizing the sky, 2 shots of a detail of a much larger object..the list goes on...

My friends...this is HOMEWORK! I have not had homework in years!!! I never really did my homework well in university....how will I get this done now!! I'm stressing already...lucky for me a nice mom at school today offered to have Cole over for the PM...yay! I'm going to attempt to be a nerd and start my homework early. Writing down possible locations to shoot these pictures.

For this week, my homework was to bring in a website of a photographer I admire. There are soooo many, but one of my favorites is John Todaro.

How amazing is he! I have a print above my jacuzzi...it's a beach scene with a lonely chair and towel...it's where I pretend to be when I'm in my own spa....

Who are your favorite photographers? Send me some links, I LOVE looking at photos and being inspired by those who can actually take great shots!


  1. 17 pictures? What an odd number. Why 17? Why not 15? or 20?

    Homework? YEESH! It's been years since I heard that! I keep wanting to return to school... but I've pushed the homework thought out of my mind!

    Confessions From A Working Mom

  2. Sounds like a fun assignment!

    One of my favorite photographers is one of the greats, Ansel Adams! I have a few of his prints throughout the house.

  3. Yikes, I don't know if I am ready for that kind of homework!

    One of my favourites is Courtney Milne - he's from SK.
