Test Taking Necessity

As I post this, my daughter is taking the ACT, so #2 pencils seemed like the perfect subject for today’s photo.

  1. It’s such a simple idea, but I really love this shot :).

    • Thanks, Loony! I really struggle to take good indoor shots, so it took a while to get one I didn’t hate. Do you have any tips for indoor shots?

      • I’m still learning, but I do know that I try my best to find some natural light for my setting because sometimes the flash gives such a harsh look. Natural light is so much softer. I really like what you did with this shot :).

      • I’m with you. Natural light is awesome. I cannot get a flash to work for me at all. I’m taking a class in January. I’m going to focus on learning all I can about lighting then! 🙂

      • I would love to take classes too, but I would have to drive so far to get to them :(. Oh well, one day! I am trying to read more about techniques though, and that is helping I think!

      • Reading and teaching oneself is a valid educational opportunity, too! 🙂 Maybe we can compare notes in January!

  2. Reminds me of going back to school and buying those pretty new pencils lol! I love school supplies 😛
