Jack was the courageous hand model for these shots. He did get pinched a few times, but toughed it out so I could get the little bugger. The crawdad was not very pleased. He was returned to the creek immediately afterward.
I have my drawing class this morning. So far, it is going well. I knew going into it that drawing was not really my specialty; I only wanted to improve how I see and learn techniques I could use in Photoshop. My instructor allows us to draw from any source, but encourages us to draw from life, so that is what I have been doing. Drawing is very difficult. The seeing is similar to photography, but amplified by many times, at least when drawing from life. I have also noticed that it is changing the way I look through my camera and organize the frame. So, I think it was a good choice.
