Photography assignment 1

With my passion for taking photos of Anna, I have started a photography course for parents. Our first lesson was about focus and light. We were given an assignment to take five photos in different rooms in the house. These are the five photos I chose with some comments from the teacher. They were all taken using my Canon 100D with the 18-55mm lense and P mode.

1. Living room

This is a good photo except that the sharp focus is slightly off. Instead of being on her eyes, it lands on her hand holding the toothbrush.

2. Dining room

I took a few photos of Anna playing the keyboard. This photo is interesting to me because it looks like she is really into her playing. However, it turns out to have a rather confusing focus. It doesn’t focus on her face because she was blurred out. If it meant to focus on her fingers and the keyboard, we could hardly see much of them in this photo.

3. Kitchen


She has a very nice expression in this photo. The light is good. But the focus is slightly off as it is on her hands. It would be better if the focus is on her eyes.

4. Guest bedroom

This photo received good feedback. There is a balance between Anna and the background. The light and focus are just right.

5. Main bedroom

This photo has a nice angle with the right light direction. However the bunny stops the light and creates shade on her face.


I really need to work on the focus of the photos and ask myself what I want to show in the photo.

    Hi Ngan

    Thanks very much for forwarding this. It’s very interesting to read the comments – I wouldn’t have noticed that the focus was more on Anna’s hands than on her face.

    Keep up the good work!

      Thanks Valerie! This is sort of my 365 project. I realised this would be a handy skill to have.
