I am having a really hard time today. I am sick and exhausted. Not only do I have to find a photo today, I also need to take three photographs for class on Wednesday. Oh no... not any photo will do. We have to photograph black and white in color. I addition we have to photograph black and white in a smooth and rough texture. I thought this assignment would be a piece of cake, but it has proven to be very difficult. I have learned that if you properly expose one color then the other comes out under/overexposed. I really have a lot of research for the best technique in such a short period of time. So in an attempt to complete my class project, this is the picture I am using for photo of the day. I am not particularly proud of this one, but the point is I tried.
