Jodie Coston's Online Photography Course

Thanks to Miss Carolyn, I am trying out Jodie Coston's online photography course. Which you'll see is freeeeee. Awesome.

I have done a bit of photography over the last few years. In fact, I did all the photography for my book, Rookie Reiner. But I could use a lot of help. It was easy to take some of the pictures, in summer with the sun shining and one subject to take a picture of. But what about more creative pictures where you want to actually say something with your photo?

Assignment #1 was to take an abstract photo based on the compositional rules in the first lesson (rule of three, golden mean, triangle, etc...). Here are my first two attempts:

I welcome any feedback, opinions... etc...

I really like the lines and color in the first one!

Funny, I came across that site last month and have been meaning to go back and look through the lessons.

Wheeee! Heather! I'm so happy to have some company in the photography class!

I LOVE your first pic. What is it? It's beautiful! And the second picture is interesting too.

Lesson 2 is also quite fun, but lesson 3 seems hard! (Maybe after a second reading it will make more sense to me.)

Either way, welcome aboard! Are you on the forums at Morguefile yet?

Thanks ladies!

The pink/yellow picture is actually post-it notes!

OMG, Post-It Notes! It looks like some kind of gorgeous abstract art that you'd find in a gallery somewhere.

Wow. Great job.
