Here we are, in week three of Blogging U.’s “Photography 101” Class.
Architecture: Study architectural forms, and also train your eye to look for shots that will translate well in black and white.
The Walt Disney Concert Hall would have been perfect for this assignment! Except I already used it last week as my “landmark”. Luckily, I happened to be in Pasadena last week, and snapped a few of the Pasadena City Hall.
Moment: Capture a fleeting moment and experiment with blur and movement.
