this is the photo of mine that was chosen to hang in the photo department at the college.
i'm taking a LR3/CS5 class this semester...
and one of our assignments was to write a paper on our 'photographic style'.
i wrote mine on my preferences for a shallow depth of field.
i then had to submit 20 photos that fit that criteria...
make them into a slideshow...
make them into a website...
and print and mat my five faves.
this week we had to bring those photos back to class...
so that the rest of the class could view them.
we all displayed our photos around the classroom...
and then we went around and picked our fave from each person's group.
each student's top photo was displayed up front...
and we then voted for our fave five photos overall.
this photo tied for second.
i now have two photos hanging in the photo department.
i must go visit them.
we began the cs5 portion of the class.
i'll have three photo projects to create.
i'm looking forward to sharing them with you.
