My SmugMug Galleries
I started looking at this part of Dgrin a couple of days ago and am trying to spend more time with camera in hand, so I thought I would post a couple of photos I took with this first assignment in mind.
Not sure if there is a "current" assignment just now or not. If there is, I am happy to jump to that one.
grass casting long shadows
triangles on nearby cathedral
stepping back to see more triangular shapes - and lines
circular lock without key
Thank you for yout entries!
Grass blades would be great if you left shadows only.
Cathedrals are too complicated with the other details. We need the primary elements be, uhm, primary, not just be somwhere in the image.
Last one is solid!
Yes, this is stronger with just the shadowy lines.
Here is one that I thought might work for diamonds or lines.
Sunday additions, shot early this morning:
And it does! Your best entry for this one thus far!
:See, now you let too much bg details (grass, light patches) into the frame - and your main theme begins to fade away...
:This was probably for the Stone class?
I realize that I am really late to the game on this one, but figured that I'd try my hand at the assignments. It got me to shoot some objects that I never would have otherwise, so thank you Nik for getting me off my butt and looking at things a little differently!
Anyways, here are the two shots that I got this morning for Shapes:
This one is a close up of a manhole cover.
A fire hydrant from above.
I didn't dig through all 22 pages of posts to see if anybody else had submitted homework that was similar so if that is the case I sincerely apologize for any lack of originality that I have displayed.
Critiques and nits are always welcome!
This is the bottom half of a sculpture outside out office...
I liked the swirls.
But I am not happy with the background. :nah
Yeah, I agree, BG and mounts ruin the idea...:cry

Very nice entry, thank you!
Another new student here.
Welcome! Image is not showing - please make shure external links are allowed in the gallery and the image is not hidden.
:bash D'oh. I set up a new gallery for these assignments and forgot to enable external links! Should be ok now.
Firstly. I 'd like to say a big thanks to you Nikolai for keeping this tread running. I have only recently found this site and would love to take part in this learning process.
Firstly. I 'd like to say a big thanks to you Nikolai for keeping this tread running. I have only recently found this site and would love to take part in this learning process. So here are my first attempts at basic shapes.
2 Lines and circles
3 Curved lines
Any feedback appreciated! Thanks!
Thanks you, nice entries!
I think #1 would benefit from a tighter crop to its dual pyramid, since the rest of the frame is messing the simplicity.
