Grandy Glaze assignment 3

I selected this photo of the flowers outside of Griesdeck hall located in the quad of Saint Louis University’s (SLU) campus. The color is what stood out to me out of my four photos for assignment #3; I believe it was the classic violet and red mixture that caught my eye. The worms eye view in which I used to take the photo makes it unique as well. Ultimately I believe this is my best shot to date in class because of the amount of thought and time I took into trying to capture the texture and warmth of this flower batch. I took nearly 12 different angles and this one was one of the last photos that I shot. I trusted my judgment and I believe that I got the best out of my subject. I used the camera at 200 and I got as close as I could without taking away from the overall beauty of the flowers.

Next time I believe I could improve on my technical skill with the camera in order to gain a better advantage with my shots.  There is not quite enough focus that captures the full potential and details of the flowers. The other factor I believe would have dramatically improved my photo is if the sun was out. I believe the sunlight exposure would have helped compensate for my lack of proper technique while shooting. I took that picture around 5:30 p.m. which is not when the sun is at its highest point in the quad. I am excited with how the photo turned out overall and I believe that I can improve even more as the course continues and I learn more techniques.
