The Photographer’s Workshop — LOVE it!
Воркшоп по фотографии — я в восторге!
Since the photographer’s workshop that I ‘m participating in has started, I have totally lost myself in photography. All of the time that was usually spent on my blog feed reading is fully dedicated to the lessons and completing the assignments now. And, truth to be told, I LOVE it! If I go for a walk, my camera goes with me. My girls were trying to pose for the camera at first. However, candid and storytelling shots have much more value in my eyes. And now that I am in continuous shooting all of the time, they became accustomed to the camera pointing on them and finally lost their interest in posing. After these three weeks of the workshop I have over a hundred photographs ready for printing.
That said, it’s a known fact that an inevitable part of a learning process is that photographs are going to become worse before an improvement happens. It’s because learning always includes leaving your comfort zone. And we are all newbies outside of it.
Now let me share one of our walks from the past weekend.
Veronika was sleeping at her dad’s that night and the morning started with walking to pick her. It was raining in the wee hours, but the sun got out of the clouds right when we were ready to head out and made everything shiny and sparkling! The grass twinkled with little diamonds of a dew in the slanting rays of the low morning sun.
You can totally feel the smell of autumn here. Red, orange and yellow leaves already have been making streets look fancier here and there.
Anastasia found this little “lantern”…
…and this gorgeous colourful maple leaves.
But most of them are still waiting for their turn on trees.
But anyway, who does like waiting? Anastasia surely doesn’t.
It didn’t seem that they missed each other at least a bit.
Anyhow, that was a nice walk. I just love all those little neat gardens that we have in abundance at our neighbourhood. All kinds off autumn flowers are in bloom here now. Dahlias and petunias are my favourites.
And these fluffy dwellers of our neighbourhood also feel the chill in the air and are catching sun on some warmer surfaces.
I am also the one who doesn’t like chill, but kids are pretty much excited with chestnuts search and really don’t care about hats, scarves and gloves.
