Monochrome Madness, a Photography Challenge from Leanne Cole

Leanne has set up a really popular Photo Challenge, already in week 35, and I joined it a few weeks ago by sending her my photo, but I forgot to do a post about it too!  Silly me.

I’ve been doing a photography class, and I have been challenged to step out of Auto and experiment with my camera.  Black and white, long exposures, portraits, fine art…. all photographs that I am less likely to take… I like landscapes

The last 3 weeks we were working on portraits, indoor and out, and our challenge this week was to prepare a self portrait (NOT a selfie!) in black and white with some red in it

A good few people in the class have sat or stood in front of the camera… but I’m not good at staying still, so here’s my homework submission:

I got up very early to take this photo so nobody would see my antics…. the out-takes would make a very funny gallery 🙂  I’m wearing my graduation dress with my wedding underskirt, and was doing barefoot twirls… I started doing cartwheels, but I got tired too quickly before I worked out my positioning so had to change to twirling instead!

I will be submitting this one for my homework….. which one should I send to Leanne?

    Auburn, I say, but then I am partial to that colour hair. I wonder why?

    Very creative, maybe a career in dancing awaits? You must be the teacher’s pet. To make an assignment with red in it?

    P.S. How is the sinus recovery going?
