Best Pictures

best_picture.JPG
one of my favorite photos

I think this picture is one of my best pictures, because it was very hard to take. One reason why it was hard to take, was because there is hardly any sun in Beijing, so it is hard to take a picture with sunlight. Another reason why this is an improvement with my photos is because i did not know how to take pictures up this close or what camera setting i had to have the camera on in order to get up close. I also had to learn how to keep a steady hand when i took the picture, so it would stay fine and not blurry. I attempted to use the light of the sun and the shadow of the tree nearby to create a light and dark effect, where the flower pedals are in the shadow, but still bright enough to show all their qualities. Also, the leaves that are closer to the flower are in shadow, but the other leaves that are out on the sun have a brighter glare and give just as much clarity. I think I have improved my technique for taking photos, because now i actually try to visualize what looks good on a camera, instead of just taking random pictures. I also look for different shades of light on pictures now and I have learned how to take better pictures since the class begun.
