What the heck! Life is full of cliches anyway. But this is my Photo 101 assignment so cliches or not, here it is. I am happy to say that this is a real time, up to date photo I took 30 – 40 minutes ago. When I received the assignment last night, I vowed to myself I would do a freshly done image and not just from my old files. I was already racking my brain for ideas while I was loitering about on The Commons also breathing inspiration from others.
I took about 20 different shots and used manual and aperture priority on my camera, not that I am savvy (nor comfortable) when it comes to exposures and settings but I had to rely heavily on my little cheat notebook. Never have I taken so many pictures of a glass of water in my entire life that I was close to getting frustrated and thought, “there is always my album full of beautiful photos of rivers and waterfalls.” Hah!
Well, I’m glad I persisted and decided on these three images with different orientations in the end. I don’t know if they are good enough but in the first two photos, I like how it shows off the cloudy blue sky in the reflection and at the same time our backyard pond.
Here’s another angle of my glass with the ice almost melting. All done.
So, is your glass half full or half empty?
