I was pretty busy this past week with photography projects. On Sunday, some friends came over and I took a family portrait for them. They wanted to get some photos during the pregnancy.
This week was the parental viewing for the ISB dance program. I ended up going to nine or ten dance classes to take photos. My original plan was to hit all the classes, but there were so many that I just decided to photograph some of them. From a photography perspective, doing it on parent viewing day was probably not the best time. The reason is that a few of the classes had a lot of parents watching, so I couldn't move around to get better angles without blocking them.
On Thursday I led a photo walk for Nalin's class. Originally we had planned to do this on one of the days that they were supposed to miss school because of the flood. I started off talking to the kids a bit about photography, and then took them out in two different groups so that they could take photos. I think that about 90% of the photos taken by boys included a basketball.
Today I took some photos of the soccer league and the swim meet. The swim meet was originally planned for mid-November, but was postponed because of the flooding.
This afternoon I played around with taking photos of food coloring in a glass of water. When you place a single drop in the water, it makes a pretty interesting pattern. I need to play around with it some more before I share any photos of it.
