Today is day 3 of my Maymester Intensive Digital Photo class. Since it is May and finally warm and sunny up here in the northern Dakota, I took my class downtown to shoot for their visual elements project. Its rare that I get 2 hours to go shoot in the middle of the day so I took advantage of shooting as well. I took my digital along, but enjoyed the immediacy and ease of my iPhone instead today. Below are a few fruits of my "labor".
As a photographer and viewer I am always drawn to images with strong line and pattern, minimalism and abstraction. Its no wonder that these images go that direction, especially after giving a long lecture yesterday on composition. This afternoon was a great day to shoot with strong sun and shadow which is perfect for abstraction.
