getting to know you

I recently participated in the Shoot by Design photo course taught by the immensely talented Amanda Gilligan. http://www.mocking-bird.org/blog/ During this course, I got to know our Red Pine tree quite well having photographed it over 30 times! What I discovered is that I love that tree! Especially, up close and in monotone! Without the color grabbing my attention I can see what I’d otherwise miss. I see striations on needles. I see the soft glow of light reflecting off of them.
In the end, I gained a lot from the course and one of the best is that now I can truly see!
