Week 2 of the 30 Day course is over.
How was this week for you? Were you able to see how writing a story was helpful this week?
Even though you may have struggled to write the story, the importance of knowing what you want is incredibly helpful in creating the image in your head.
How to light your image, what props to choose, how to frame your photo and lot of other decisions depend on the story. As you create more images and practice, these decisions will become second nature to you.
As you learn these details, some days will be frustrating. Some days things just won’t work. But keep moving ahead. Little by little, one step at a time keep on going.
So today is a catch up day.
Today is a good day to take a break from learning anything new and to make sure you that in last few days you have made progress. Today is also the time to discuss a topic with your fellow participants and teach each other.
Oh yes!! Just like last catch up day, there is a Day 14 assignment. The purpose is not to make you take more photos, but rather to make you think and discuss with other participants.
To start today’s day let’s recap what we learned this week:
Time estimated – 15-20 mins
Similar to last week, today’s assignment is focused on making sure that you are able to let the lessons from this week sink in. We will pause a little today and make sure you have time to catch up. Today’s assignment does not require you taking any food. Today again, you have three specific tasks – updating your progress, weekly discussion and selecting your best food photo.
Task 1 – Progress Update
Remember the purpose of this task? The goal is to pause and record what you have learned and tell yourself what needs to be improved. Ready?
Task 2 - Weekly Discussion
In the comments below, tell us about your lighting equipment. If you use natural light, have you thought about using artificial light?
Task 3 - Optional - Your Best Food Photo This Week
Your next task is to share your best food photo you took this week (as part of this course) and post it in the facebook album. Link to facebook group is here. If you don't want to post on facebook, feel free to post below in the comments.
If you are still with me, here's some more stuff for extra credit...
