The Cattle Drive and the Fountain Place, two unique downtown Dallas sights, where we made pictures this morning. There was, however, a catch, today we were sent out with assignments: deep and shallow depth of field, blurred and stopped motion, as well as soft, side lighting was what we were to demonstrate today.

After our exciting morning of making pictures and (hopefully) fulfilling our assignments, we went to our afternoon sessions where Mr. Davidson and Mr. Stanley shared their knowledge of flash photography and composition. Everything we did today has been a great help in furthering our photographic skills and our creativity. The best part is, we still have three days of fun to look forward too!

Picture this . . . you have two and one-half hours to take 72 pictures in Downtown Dallas. This was our first assignment as a student of IPS. Basically we were turned loose downtown to “make images” of whatever jumped out at us. Just when we thought we would never feel our fingers again, we came back to the training center. After we ate lunch, we had a few training sessions to teach us how to create better images. At the end of our day we had an awesome critique session that gave us a chance to see a few shots that our classmates had taken. This is definitely one of the best courses I’ve ever taken through the Institute and I would recommend it to anyone interested in photography.

Students arrived at the Dallas Training Center all afternoon in preparation for the second course of Basic Photography at the Institute of Photographic Studies. Our first session began at 6:00.

After a brief overview of what our week would entail, Mark Stanley gave a short introduction of himself, and why he had started this course. Then each student was given an opportunity to share a little bit about themselves and why they were interested in photography. Our backgrounds were all different and our experiences very varied, but we all shared an interest in expressing the creative hand of God through photography.

It will be exciting to see how God will use the things we learn this week to increase not only our skills, but also our knowledge of His amazing principles of lighting, pleasing composition, color, and symmetry as we seek to please Him with the images we make of His world.
