This week’s lab was to hold up a piece of stiff paper(I used card stock) with a hole in it…and photograph through the hole. Not quite sure what the point was…but I had some fun with it anyways. Note that despite the apparent colour differences, I used the same piece of white cardstock for each photo. Some photos have a lot of the cardstock showing, others have very little. I used my DSLR for all of these…

And of course, Stewie:
I think part of the objective of this lab was to get the “focal point” of the photo(in the hole) the correct colour, correct exposure and in focus…despite holding the cardstock in front of it. This I managed to do most of the time…but since my white cardstock varied greatly in colour it would suggest that I didn’t really meet all the goals of this workshop(is this a white balance issue or exposure compensation issue??). Or maybe that is not important- what is inside the hole counts!
