Photography 101

I was very nervous about our first assignment in my elective Photography 101. The instructor told us to do some nude photography. I blushed and turned my head ahead. How could I do that? I was really nervous for the rest of the day, but I had the entire next day free of classes. I decided the quicker I completed this assignment, the quicker it would be over. Well, duh! It is a truism, but so very right, too.

The next morning after my shower, I grabbed my camera and set off to get this assignment over with.

As you can see, I did it! I actually did it! I was quite proud of myself, and I loved the images I captured of carved doorways, even the storefronts, and beautiful flowers growing in the park. I recognized this guy behind from class. I had to smile knowing he would be standing naked soon enough. He was going to get behind in his assignments just snapping photos like that.

I’m not quite sure why I had to be nude to take these photos, but I’m glad I did it. Holding the camera was empowering. I’m sure my instructor will give me really high marks on my nude photos!
