a Silly class, I learned that...

I believe in challenges.
I love learning.
discovering.
finding out - OH, that's how that works.
Now, I know.

So, I took this class Silly Light.
Above is the Silly Food Sculpture.
Baby Bok Choy (I never did cook it) with Strawberries (I ate them, raw).

I learned some more things about:
 my tripod.
Lighting.
That I need to blur that table cloth in the background so it's not so distracting.
Light from a window source is good.
Aperature.
Photographing fresh fruit and veggies in the winter is a good replacement for flowers in the spring and summer.
Baby Bok Choy is a cool thing to say, and is great to photograph.

yes you do...believe in learning! and i'm trying to figure out on my little G11 how to play with aperture too...i could do that with my old film camera. watched a film on edward weston yesterday, his gnarly peppers compared to bodies, such similar sculptural elements.
and YOU are as cool as Baby Bok Choy! in the quest of et al. yes, TT.

The lighting is GOOD! I love winter light it wraps all around us instead of beating down on us. Bok Choy is delicious in stir fry. I wonder if all the beautiful fruits and vegetables are the best ones to eat ... Oh, but then there's the lowly potato ... He's a keeper :)

Sounds like a fun class...and that you'll learn a lot.

I like your still life very much, how the strawberry is holding up that big bok choy on it's little shoulders.

As I was selecting the bok choy a friend asked me what I was going to do with it. I told her "photograph it, I have do idea how to cook it."

She then gave me some stir fry cooking ideas.

The baby bok choy got photographed, put in the crisper in the fridge, where it got moldy, and tossed out. Maybe next time!
