Self portrait taken while sitting in the Dunkin Donuts drive through lane, while picking up bagels for snacks for my younger son. (above)
Below is a test shot for the scavenger hunt item #1 in which we had to do a self-portrait with our contestant number in it as well. I figured getting this #70 in the shot was too hard, as the number next to it was 72, and I worried both numbers would show, so we didn't do this for the competition. Looking at this now I see this shot came out great but it was so sunny that I couldn't see the preview screen on my camera to see if this came out. I also had no clue how that disposable camera would turn out so I gave up on the idea. We walked for another 20 minutues to find a different #70. I didn't take test shots of any other photos and just 'winged it'. I also forgot to take a digital photo of the actual submission we used. I just hope it turned out alright! I can't wait to see the final images.
Below is a self-portrait in a New Haven building. I was thinking of doing a shot like this for the scavenger hunt item 'reflection' but I did not choose to do that after all. The graininess I believe is due to the fact that the window is dirty!
Below is the shot I took when we finished the competition. We were freezing. I came up with a new acronym which I kept to myself FMAO.
By the way I consider doing this photography competition an 'art lesson' in our homeschooling adventure.
