Noodles anyone?

Noodles anyone?

Uploaded: May 19, 2002


I had my (non-expert at chopsticks) son hold up some ramen noodles so that there was a reflection on a green poster board taped to the outside wall; the shadow formed beneath the subject and chopsticks formed a diagonal line.

Wow! This image and the steps one before it are really, really great! I took Mr. Petersons course before this one and I bet he will really like these! Great job!

Sorry for the delay in responding, Stephanie - and thank you so much for your comments! Actually, Bryan said about this image, "Fabulous shot . . . BUT GREEN???" I had to laugh - hadn't even thought of the "health" connotations of green - just picked a color I thought would "go" with the yellowish-cream color of the noodles. He suggested I try a white poster board for a cleaner and healthier image - which I will do. (But still like the green!)

I looked at your gallery, and very much admire your photography. Grandma's Eyes is probably my favorite and evokes the most emotion. (My mother had Alzheimer's for over 15 years before she died in 1999. I hope your Grandma is still clear of mind.) I also LOVE your Little Hands, Dew Drops, Lost Boy, and Girl in Rain (primary colors? Beautiful!) I also bought Bryan's Understanding Exposure right before this course started, and it's written so well and easy to understand; even though I've been shooting pictures for most of my life, I'm really starting to "get" the exposure angle. Once again, thanks so much for your feedback! #8195

Hi Janelle, I liked the green too! I dont' see white as giving it enough color, but who know! It may better, and I usually find that Mr.Peterson knows exactly what he is talking about! lol Just wait, the course gets better and you will find sometimes that you wont fully get what he is teaching until AFTER the lesson! I look back at my lesson images and want to do them again! lol Enjoy the course. I am taking his UE course in the Fall and can't wait to learn more from the master :o)

Thanks on the comments about my work by the way. I really appreciate it! #8200
