Black, White, and Grey

It’s becoming a bit of a habit for me to post something about my Design class on Tuesdays.  Here is my latest assignment:

ISO 800 50mm 0ev f/4.5 1/50

Here’s the assignment. Take a picture of a rubber plant.  Then use black, white, and grey to represent it.  The black and grey papers were created using ink on bristol board.  The white is just regular bristol board.  I used the fisheye function in my point and shoot camera to distort the leaves a bit because I thought it would be more interesting.  This project was a bit of a bust.  For starters, the ink made the paper hard to cut in any interesting way and that was just annoying.  I could go on but I won’t, the project is finished and turned in, so it’s over.

White-Winged Nightmare

How is that for a melodramatic post title?  Here is the bird in question:

ISO 100 135mm f5.6 1/25

So, not exactly a nightmare, but I did have trouble with over-exposure on this one.  Suggestions on how to shoot a white bird on a dark background?
