Shoot Along 2015

Last year I found myself in a bit of a photography "rut."  I used to love carrying my camera everywhere and snapping thousands of photos.  I'm not really sure what happened.  Maybe it's a thing called life.  I became to busy.  It seemed more convenient to snap photos with my iPhone because I always had it with me.  My iPhone does take decent pictures, but not nearly as good as my DSLR, but I still couldn't get motivated to break out my DSLR.  I had researched different photography classes hoping I could find one that would fit my criteria and my budget, but all the ones I found seemed too 
expensive.  Also, as a busy mom of three and wife, I didn't have endless time to devote to such a complex thing.  Then one day, as I was browsing the world of Facebook, I came across a photography course called Shoot Along 2015.  It fit into my budget and seemed like something I could actually find/make the time to do.  I shared it with one of my good friends and she decided to join with me, so we are holding each other accountable;)  Thanks, Jent for taking the plunge with me:)  Each month I hope to share the pictures here for all of you to see!

Each month they give you a lesson to complete by the end of the month.  You then share your images on the forum for all the other "students" to see and critique.  This month's lesson is composition and leading lines. 

Some people, including me when I first started dabbling in photography, think that an image has to be perfectly composed, in the middle of the frame, but actually if you practice the rule of thirds it adds more interest to your photo. 
 I am notorious for tilting my camera during photo shoots;)

 The leading lines lesson was a little bit harder for me to capture than the composition.  I snapped this photo as Mel was watching for the bus out the window.  It finally clicked that this was my leading lines shot and I only had about 20 seconds to grab my camera, fumble with the settings, and snap the picture.  I still like how it turned out.  I guess you could say I was in a bit of a black and white mood this month since all my pictures for the forum are in black and white.  Maybe next month I can add a bit of color to the mix!
