Homework Week 4

March was supposed to be the month about me! I had grand plans.  I haven't done much with photography since we moved to New Mexico & I was very excited to sign up for an e-course

Fast forward three weeks & after preparing for & taking spring break, the month has disappeared. The course is almost over & I haven't posted a homework assignment. I'm going to try to do as many as possible over the next week. 

This week's assignment was to tell a story in a single image. I wanted to tell the story of girlfriends - the secrets, the inside glances - all the fun stuff. These two are inseparable & had so much fun with the photo shoot. Though, I must say it is very difficult to see how grown up they look in some of the shots.

It was so hard to pick just one photo, but this is one I love.

The second part of the assignment was to post a self-portrait. 

I think I need to invest in a tripod & a remote! This isn't a true self portrait, but I am in the picture & the twins had fun taking turns with the camera. The photo isn't framed how I anticipated (their little hands couldn't quite handle the camera), but I am in the photo! I didn't plan to make this one black & white, but our clothing clashed & because of the way Charlie held the camera, part of the tree was blown out. But, impressive for a 5 year old!
