Photo workshop; Assignment 1: Create your own style

A couple of weeks ago i saw the announcement on her blog to participate to a photo workshop.
I like photography a lot. I wish i had much more time to go out and take lots of pictures. I also wish i had the knowledge to take more professional pictures and know ALL about my camera.
This workshop gives me the chance to learn more about photography. Here you can read more about the assignment:
Pure Photo Workshop

Let me introduce myself to the other participants:

Hello, i’m Barbara (41 y), mother of 2 beautiful daughters and married to the Love of my life.
We live in a small city in the middle of the Netherlands.
I take pictures with my Canon 1000D (Zoom lens 80-200 and standard 18-55) or my Iphone.
Because i like photography, Instagram and Pinterest are my “favorite waste of time” šŸ˜‰

Britt Straatemeier gave us the first assignment. As a proffessional photographer she said: “When you know who you are and what your style is you can use this in every creative process”.
And she is right.

So, i had to find out what M Y S T Y L E is and i created a My style pinboard on Pinterest.

Part 1 of the assignment was not too hard to achieve. Just P I N , P I N, P I N anything i like.
Part 2 was a bit harder. I had to find out what “My Style” was. With a little help from my kids we came up with the word C O L O R F U L

Because i love colorful items, doesn’t mean that this style is necessarily M E
With my camera i am always looking for the right light, right brightness, right feeling, right everything.
Every captured moment deserves it’s own feeling.
L O V E captured in red ….
N A T U R E captured in fresh pure light…
S U N S E T captured in orange & warmth….
P O R T R A I T captured in Black & White…

My children gave me a few words that described me:

C A R E
W A R M T H
C O L O R F U L
C R E A T I V E
C R O C H E T

So, the next picture is just like M E šŸ˜‰
And just like M Y S T Y L E because of the light, the colors and the brightness of the picture.
