In the time we have been doing the photography course, we have learnt different things including different ways to use the camera and a variety of photo-taking techniques.

In the photo I have chosen we were inspired by Mari Mahr. We used her technique of taking a photo, then printing it out, putting an object on the original photo and re-taking the picture.

We have also learnt how to use macro. Macro is a setting on the camera where you can move at least 1 centimetre away from the object, it focuses on the detail and you can get some very good photos.

We have also done a visual elements sheet. This is where we took different images of tone, texture and colour. This way, if we need to get a photo of texture, we can come back to this sheet to remind ourselves of the various types of picture we could use.

Recently, we have been taking photographs of poppies, for the Royal British Legion exhibition. We have then been editing them on Photoshop, and they have turned out very well. Throughout the photography course I have learnt a lot. I enjoy the course and I hope to learn more.
