Rabbit sits still

Rabbit sits still

8 week online workshop lesson 3 6 No one wanted to sit still long enough for me to play around with the focal length, so I roped in a rabbit 🙂 My favourite is the rabbit in the tree with its shadow against the tree.

8 week online workshop lesson 3 Topic 2 Get Closer This was fun – I didn’t really want to post the second image of Louise on the slide, but I managed to amputate a Lou’s legs at strange places and lop off a few toes, so I had to go with this one. Please excuse the white box – I loved the image but didn’t feel comfortable about posting it as it was. Image 1 was at eye ... »

Going on an adventure…

8 week online workshop lesson 3 Eliminate Distractions Seeing as the girls rarely get the chance to interact with other children out here I have to be fairly creative with how to make each day interesting and interactive for them. So this morning we packed up our Anzac biscuits and our water bottles and went ‘on an adventure’. The adventure consisted of driving down to Heifer Paddock a... »
