Raven,
If it wasn't for coloring outside the lines, I wouldn't be able to color at all.

This weeks homework (the last week of the really technical stuff): use a histogram to create a correctly exposed image of a white-ish thing on a white background that looks actually white.

Please forgive the bad editing when I tried to add the historgram.

Last week was catchup.  I did the extra homework but incorporated it into my daily photography so nothing special to share with you.

Now we move away from the technical stuff to composition.  any of you frustrated with the first section, come on back.  This is much easier again and doesn't need a fancy camera for most of it.

Foreground, background, subject.  This week gives an awareness of the three.  The optional book was a big help for me here.  It's neat the way the book and the emails don't quite cover the same thing, but work together to increase learning.

Henny Penny was my 'subject'.  She had some fun with old man's beard and we got to work on the homework.

Having something familiar in pictures like this gives a nice way to add "scale" without having something like a coin or a ruler *shouting* scale!  Nicely done.
