August Media Bootcamp: Photography

Our very first assignment in the photography session of the August bootcamp was to explore New York City and take photos that correspond to certain assignment themes, such as light, perspective, and color. My photos turned out amateurish, in my opinion, but nonetheless I’m sharing them to show my friends and family back home what I’ve been up to. Feel free to comment, but remember: this was my first time using this camera, a Canon G11.

Waiting for the train at the 110th-Central Park North subway station.

The view from the edge of the platform at the 110th-Central Park North subway station. Yes, I leaned way over the tracks to get it.

Messing with shutter speed settings and lighting as the train pulls into the station at 110th-Central Park North. I think everyone has at least one of these shots.

I was lucky enough to get this shot of a little girl skipping around the fountain in the Central Park Conservatory Gardens, just after she ran up and asked if I was taking pictures "of the scenery."
