To kick off this year, we’ll focus on improving our skills beyond the basics. Our first challenge will be to improve our “eye”. Take a walk (around your house or around your town or around your favorite path) and find 3 interesting subjects. Use lighting that is in place. Any subject you like, including people. Compose carefully so you don’t have to crop. Look all around your viewfinder before pressing the shutter. Take the time to edit out distractions and ensure you’re not cutting off anything important. If you can, add a blurb about what attracted you to take the photo. As always, new photos only please (except gk until he’s cleared for activity).
