Photography Class Photos, pt. 2

After a couple of hours "Downtown "we were told to go to an old "Homestead" in town for the 2nd part of the field trip.

Leah and Millie went home. So I could not cheat here . . .

However, I managed to find another model.

We meet tomorrow to compare our photos. I can't wait to see what the others got. I took my photos to get them printed today. I had them on a USB stick. I had never printed from one of those and asked the girl at the counter to help me . When my photos came up she said, "You can't print professional photos without a copyright ." I could not believe it!

I am taking a Photography Class !

I finally got a new camera ! I am clueless as to how to use it, so I am taking a "Photography Class"!

Today we had our first class field trip . . . the instructor told us to go "downtown " and shoot whatever we could find there.

I brought my youngest daughter, "Leah",

and her dog, "Millie".

Was that cheating ? ? ?

Get to know Mr. Coffin

Christopher Coffin's interiors are worldly. He keeps his focus on classic design staying far away from trends and faddish design. I just love the layering he has achieved in this space. It almost tells a story.

This space looks so peaceful, I love the soft grays and taupes used here.

His rooms are full of personality, they have a world traveled feel with just a hint of a contemporary flair.

He strives to create environments that will continue to be as special years from now as they are today.

I think he found his calling . . .
