Kill My Pics is revived

After a very very long break I have decided to revive my blog.

As before, once a week I will upload here one of my many pics  for you to critique or in other words “kill”. You don’t have to be a photographer for that just a person with an opinion and a desire to share it.

The more you write the more I (and others) learn so feel free to express yourself.

And now, here is my latest picture for you to “kill”:

My Photography Course

Ok. it’s not really mine – I am only one student out of 15 but I am happy to say that I started a photography course 2 weeks ago and I think it’s just the boost I needed to bring this blog back to life again.

The course’s main theme is light. The differences between contrast light and soft light and the importance of light and color in photography. Tomorrow we are going to start shooting just before dawn, around 05:00 AM! when the light is supposed to be perfect.

I really hope I will come back with some nice pics but I still need the feedback and advice other photographers and photography lovers can give me, so I will keep on adding pictures here and hope that someday this photoblog will grow into a nice comunity of photography and art lovers.

In the mean time, I will go prepare my camera and tomorrow I will add a few words about light, color and a new picture for you to kill.

For now you can enjoy one of my animal pics (feel free to kill it…)
