Week 3: Still Life - Fruit
Canon T5i Rebel - f/7.1 - 1.6sec - ISO 200 - 44mm
Lesson for this week for me: Plan ahead. You’d think since I came up with the challenge I’d already have what I needed in mind. Wrong. I like to challenge myself too.
I came up with an idea. This picture is not my best. I know I can do better, but because I ran out of ideas, this is what I present. I’ve noticed that everyone has been awesome with encouraging one another with their submissions and I ABSOLUTELY love that! But, what I’ve also noticed is that there really hasn’t been any constructive criticism either. So, I want you to practice on my picture here. It may be that you guys have never had to criticize anything before and are scared to hurt feelings. Well, I’m saying hit me with your best shot. :)
1. Tell me what you would have done different to make the picture better. Look at my settings and tell me what I could’ve done differently.
2. Positive - Negative - Positive. Start the comment with a positive note (The color is awesome!), then a negative (but your fruit looks spoiled.)( it is because hubs ate the good ones), then end on a positive (I like the way you stacked the berries!). You can use this any where. Workplace, school, with your own kids…
3. No name calling. I’m sensitive.
So, let me have it! Nicely. :) Plus, I want to see what you guys have learned in the last 3 weeks!
