Adventures off auto

Beauty in little wings 

Pretty butterfly outside half acre gym. Creative device: rule of thirds.

I took this photo using my iPhone 6s outside half acre gym on Sept. 25, 2017. I was on the phone with my grandma when I saw around 20 butterflies in this patch of flowers.

The dominant creative device in this photo is the rule of thirds. I also think that this photo has a lot of colors and that is why I think that color is also a creative device used.

Trees can grow in rocks

This photo was taken Sept. 27, 2017, in Roger’s Canyon. Creative device: depth.

I talked my friend Jacy into taking an adventure with me to go take pictures. We chose to head out to Roger’s Cayon since Jacy had never been out there. After our hike on our way back to the car, I noticed this little branch.

This picture is taken with my Canon 7D. I was going for focus originally when taking this photo however when I took what I was going for it wasn’t too great of a picture. I snapped a couple more and fell in love with this picture. It is so simple and beautiful. The main creative device in this photo is depth. A couple of the other creative devices are texture, color, and focus.

Life in Paisley’s paws

Paisley on Sept. 24, 2017. Creative device: point of view.

This is my favorite photo that I took indoors this past week. I am pretty bias but Paisley is my favorite photography subject because she is just so cute.

I took this with my Canon 7D. The creative devices I used mainly was the point of view but also a little focus. I thought this photo would be more interesting from the same level as her. The light on her nose is not ideal but I think it adds character to the photo.

Backroad adventures

This is taken in Roger’s Canyon on Sept. 27, 2017. Creative devices: leading lines.

I love the sunspots in this photo! While some people do not like sunspots I think they can add to the beauty of a photograph.

I was a little disappointed that in Roger’s Canyon the road doesn’t have the yellow lines to create a more dramatic leading lines photo but I still think this is a cool photo. The leading line of the highway is the main creative device but that main one creates depth and I think there are some great colors in this photo too.

Branching out of comfort zones

Fallen tree branch in Roger’s Canyon Sept. 27, 2017. Creative device: Texture

This picture was the very last photo I took on Jacy and I’s Roger’s Canyon adventure. It also happens to be one of my favorites that I took out there.

I took this picture to show texture within the tree branch. The photo also happens to have a leading line through the photo as well as focus as a creative device.

Assignment after my heart

 This assignment has been my favorite thing I have been told to do in a very long time. I am very inexperienced when it comes to manual settings on a camera and it so happens that my camera is mainly manual settings. I am so glad this assignment made me get out there and switch my camera off auto and really try to figure out the setting I have previously been fairly clueless about.

I was pretty surprised to find out how the different settings helped me think about different ways to photograph different things. It really got me to step out of my comfort zone and for those of you who know me know that my comfort zone is something I don’t leave often, or ever.
