This weekend, my sister and I invited members of the Winnipeg South Photo Club out to our parents place for a photography field trip (something we’ve been doing for a few years). Only three people showed up this time around, but we all had a nice time. For the photo club crowd, attractions include my parents flower garden, chatting with Mom, listening to my Dad tell stories, and exploring one of the hilly areas of Manitoba. For my sister and I, it’s just fun to introduce people to our first home.
In terms of my own photography goals for the weekend, other than focusing on our farm project (I’ll talk about that in a separate blog post), I wanted to try doing another self-portrait. I love the setting that I found (I climbed up a rickety ladder to the wood loft in that dress), but I’m not certain about the result. I like the light and the mood, but the whole thing was lacking a concept. Also I didn’t do so well on the technical front. Anyways, this is what I ended up with. Comments and critique very welcome.
