What a day full of learning new information! This morning we went out on the town in an attempt to shoot prizewinning photographs. Our assignments included taking a picture of stopped motion, and another picture that needed to appear blurred to give the look of moving.

Our first endeavor was to get some good shots at the cattle drive sculptures in downtown Dallas. Next we headed to Fountain Place to get some water images.

Then for our classroom time, we were taught lighting, composition, and black & white photography. I learned so much and am looking forward to shooting some more pictures tomorrow with the information I learned today!

IPS 10 Begins…

Our first day of classes was full of fun, challenge, fascination, and enlightenment.

The fun came with the assignment to experiment with our cameras, a roll of film, and two hours in the West End of Dallas.

The challenge was finding an unusual purple shot.

The fascination was seeing the creativity that sixteen students discovered looking through a lens.

The enlightenment was throughout our sessions and “on the field” as our instructors presented the principles of “Prizewinning Photography.”

“Being confident of this very thing, that He which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:6).

Arriving at the Dallas Training Center was quite an experience. I walked in the front door and was instantly greeted by an elegant, slightly sophisticated environment. Large pillars and cozy couches give it a grand—yet homey—feel. I could hardly take everything in when, suddenly, IPS begins.

I started by entering a professional studio where Katie was busily arranging the backdrop and lights, readying the studio to take the students personal ID portraits. And then the classes began. Rowan led the group in a time of getting to know each other with thought-provoking questions such as, “Hamburger or Pizza?” and “Coke or Pepsi?” and “If you could create one image of any event in the past 100 years, what would it be?”

We finished the evening with a video about Pulitzer Prizewinning photographers and the stories behind their photographs. We learned that finding that one special image doesn’t happen every day, but requires persistence, determination, and hard work.

Most of all, we learned to be flexible and to let God work through photography to allow us to be better witnesses for Him. Now I’m fired up and ready to start snapping!
