Photo 101

I've been taking photography classes this year and wanted to share a few photographs with you that I recently shot during field trips and for class assignments.

And my fave of the day:

It is kind of scaring having your images thrown on the big screen for all to see and critique, but it is actually quite helpful.  You know what I mean.... you see work by other people and say, "Wow!  I love that.  Awesome!"  And then some make you say, "Whoa!  I'm not sure what they were aiming for, but nice try.  I've already totally nailed that!"  Right?  It can be a boost, or take you down a notch!  Besides, I'm certainly not above needing all the help I can get!!

This Sunday we have a field trip at 6:00 a.m.  Despite the hour, I'm actually looking forward to it.  I probably wouldn't otherwise make myself get up that early to shoot!

I would like to shoot Senior pictures this summer and decided I better work on a name for my bidness!  Since I have four kids, I wanted to have the name be related to my kiddos.  So I thought of... are you ready?... "Four-tography"!  Ha!  Ok, not really.  How about "Miss Mona's Photography"?  Everyone around here knows me as Miss Mona.  Kind of simple and to the point!

I'm also getting to know Photoshop CS4 a little better.  I love it!  It is addicting.  I seriously have so much to learn there as well. I've been playing around with making a watermark and will post some of those images soon. 

Thanks for stopping by!
