Our winter term this year was spent helping each other through the difficulties of online classes during a pandemic. Here are some photos of the places, people, and animals I have been with these past months.
We spent a week in January with Maegan’s goats in Medford, Oregon. I will take more goat pictures the next time I see them. I really like the framing with the fence I was able to achieve in this photo. I wanted to get a photo with Stella framed and looking into the lens and am happy I was able to capture this moment. I really like that her sister, Zelda, in looking back at her and that her face wasn’t cut off by Stella or the fence. I wanted to take a photo that exhibited a renaissance triangular composition.
Back at our apartment in Eugene, Oregon we shared many mornings together in our living room. I found that this room gets the best lighting in our whole apartment late morning to early afternoon. While this photo isn’t technically perfect, I really like the lighting and expression I was able to capture.
We travel under Onyx Bridge almost every time we visit campus. This day I set out with the intention of only taking photos at 35mm. I had not planned on my photo of the bridge that I pass so often being my favorite. I plan to take photos of Onyx Bridge again so I can create a photo with less distortion. I really like the imperfections in the architecture in this photo, like the interrupted rhythm in the window placement, I am excited to photograph it again.
We had an unfortunate occurrence of our groceries disappearing from our front door, presumably by the muskrats that live in the river outside our apartment. I knew it would be impossible to take a well lit photo in this room at this hour but I really liked the textures I ended up with. This window is east facing so this room would be a good place for if I want to take portraits in the morning.
Maegan’s bearded dragon, Lucy, has gotten a lot of attention since people are always in the apartment. I took over 400 photos of Lucy this day, trying to get just one where her eye was in focus. I will take her picture again, earlier in the day when there is more light and it is easier to take a well lit photo. We have had many morning tea parties with Lucy this past month. We have discovered that her favorite food is raspberries but she can not have them often.
