Painting is just another way of keeping a diary ~Pablo Picasso

Well, I'm taking another photography class this spring. This week our assignment was black and white, particularly looking at photographs by Josef Sudek. He's got some pretty moody images; things I'd love to work on if we were in our foggy season, and he's also got lots of still life images. My absolute favorite is the one I've included to the right side of this post: the drinking glass and egg reflection. I have no idea how he got it looking like this! I tried, but couldn't even come close. So I ended up working on another of his subject matter with water bubbles on the side of a vase. He gets a lot more detail without making the lighting quite so harsh as I did. My heart wasn't in this one. Maybe if I were house-bound for a while, it would be something to experiment with more. Anyway, class is tomorrow, so I'll have a new assignment for next week.
