New Class Week #1

I started another photography course at the New England School of Photography.  The first week assignment was to bring in 20 pictures of a subject you enjoy.  I took some outdoors pictures and then I messed around with random items in my house.  I am getting bored with taking outdoors pictures.  I feel like I have taken a million pictures outside and I think my boredom is making them suffer.  Anyways, I took some pictures with a back drop inside the house.  I haven't really found my sweet spot with this type of shooting.  So, this post won't be my best and it sure isn't my favorite.

My favorite out of this bunch is the one with the sun rising and the trees having a silhouette feel to them.  I like the others but it feels like I have done those pictures countless times.
The next two pictures are from last night during a dog walk with Cena.  I didn't take many pictures, but I got two that I really enjoyed.

The picture of the fence is my favorite of the two, there's too much pain in the second picture.  I starting to really think that night time photography is a strength of mine.  I enjoy taking pictures at night.  I want to get better and find different ways of taking pictures at night. 
These next set of pictures are me stepping out of my comfort zone, and I'm not sure how I feel about them.  I think some came out nice, but I think others were a miss.  The first two pictures are of one of my other hobbies. 

I was messing around with the depth of field on these two.  I liked the narrow depth of field over getting everything in focus. 
The next one is of a book by Grant Morrison that recounts the evolution of comics since their inception.  I love the cover of the book and tried to get a good picture to show it off.  I'm not to fond of it, but I didn't think it came out too bad.

Eh, is all I can really say about it. 
The next bunch of pictures is of random things around the house.  I will keep practicing taking pictures with lights and all that jazz.  For now, all I have are pictures of Jason Vorhees!

That's all for now.  I hope to do an update once a week while taking the class.
