Re-reading this project I realise that some of the photographs I took for this exercise do not qualify as ‘points’ at all.    The section starts off by saying that in order to be classed as a point,

Abandoned tractor

the subject needs to be small in the frame and occupy just a fraction of the space.   My tractor is not a point therefore but the centre of the flower should qualify.  I think I’m going to experiment with this a little more before submitting my assignment.

Clematis flower

I also took some images of a lone tree in the middle of a field which worked well, although the colours were very bland and dull.  I’ve played around in Elements a little bit and quite like the results although I realise that I need to experiment more.  I’m never sure how much is enough though or when it becomes too far.

About Anne Bryson

I live in Gloucestershire with my husband Iain and West Highland Terrier, Isla. I enjoy golf, photography and my grandchildren, not necessarily in that order! Having completed a 10 week digital photography course with the Open University in 2010, I decided I wanted to take my photography further and enrolled for the Open College of the Arts BA (Hons) starting with 'The Art of Photography' which I enjoyed so much that I went gone on to do Digital Photographic Practice and People and Place. In April 2016 I enrolled on my fourth OCA photography course, Documentary. This blog is my Learning Log for this course.
