Project 365 - Level III Goes to the Orchid Show

Level III Goes to the Orchid Show

Last Saturday was the last day of class for the Level III Advanced Digital Photography Class taught by Jeremiah Jenner.  This class was different than the other two that I took because we never met at school!  One week we would go on a field trip and the next week we would meet at Jeremiah's studio to work on PhotoShop.

This last day of class we met at War Memorial Auditorium in Fort Lauderdale and attended the Orchid Show.  The assignment was Macro Photography.  I have three magnifying lenses that fit on top of my regular lens, so I was all set and ready to go. 

This is one of my most favorite types of photography.  I don't have to deal with people and I don't have to be pressured.  This was at a very leisurely pace.  We had two hours to wander and shoot.  I got right into it and in fact, I was crawling all over the floor and bending and stretching.  So much so that the little tiny split in the knee of my jeans is now a huge gap!  Oh well, it was bound to happen!  It is all part of the job.

The very last photo is our teacher and mentor, Jeremiah Jenner using his phone to take a close up shot of an orchid that one of the students bought at the show!

It was fun and I will miss class, but I need time to shoot on my own now.

Lovely images! I love Orchid shows. We went to one in DC a few years ago when we were there with the kids. It was so much fun to shoot.
