Photography course portfolio

I finished my photography course this week 🙂  I’ve had a brilliant time and it’s been so helpful and interesting.  I love learning new things 🙂  The good news is…another course is being run in February for using Photoshop Elements, which I’m going to sign up for.  Annnnd…I should have my 50mm prime lens by then (thank you Santa!)  Below are the 6 photographs I submitted for my portfolio.  We weren’t allowed to alter them in any way, which ended up being quite frustrating when I ventured into trying Photoshop and saw the difference it made…can’t wait for the February course!  My theme, of course, was Food and Baking 🙂

Coming up next week…

I have a few ideas for baking projects next week…chocolate orange cupcakes with cointreau ganache, peanut butter chocolate
brownies & kinder chocolate cookies! I’ve also got myself a new tripod (Velbon) & am saving up for a 50mm prime lens for my SLR 🙂

My photography course

5 weeks ago (feels like forever!) I started a beginner’s DSLR photography course.  I’m absolutely loving it and have discovered my creative side (although I think baking may count towards that as well :-))  For the course, we have to produce a small portfolio on a particular theme.  Take a guess at what I’ve chosen!  The challenge with my baking theme is being able to show that I can use a variety of settings on the camera (rather than just my top favourite blurry background large aperture photos).  I’ll be baking (of course!) and posting potential photos on the blog, so I’d welcome any feedback 🙂
