Week 2 – 2017 Black White Grey
This week it’s Week 2 – 2017 Black White Grey. I’ve been learning about grey scale and how a camera ‘sees’ things. There’s also been cinema visits and light-trail fun!
The week started with work. I was finished by 2pm, got home had lunch and the boys came down.
We missed Ash’s birthday as I was ill. He had his card on the day but we kept his present of books for today. He loved the Pixar character encyclopedia, full of pictures from his favourite films!
Theo was happy to play with cars and the garage, dropping cars down the slopes is his favourite!!
Whilst Theo was playing Ashley and I had some fun making light-trails with a torch.
On Monday I went to see Manchester By The Sea. (On my own as it was a preview showing) The story about Lee Chandler, a janitor whose brother dies and he finds out at the will reading that he’s to become the guardian of his 16 year old nephew.
On paper the story sounds rather miserable but the way the story is told is more about what’s not said rather than what is. A very visual film.
I loved it and Casey Affleck can act the socks off his brother!
Nothing much to report until Friday. We had snow!! On the way to work at 6.30am it was coming down lightly and there was just enough to cover the ground and that was it!!
After work I went to see La La Land – not hubby’s type of film at all!! Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in this song and dance musical. Very reminiscent of the old fashion musicals of the 50s.(actually probably before that!!) It follows the story of an out of work actress and an aspiring jazz pianist.
It’s a fab film if you like this genre. They are not the best singers and certainly not Fred and Ginger (or Gene Kelly who cannot be bettered!) but they pull it off brilliantly. A future classic!
So onto this weeks homework of AYWMC.
The technical side starts with exposure and discovering that a camera on Auto sees all white or all black as grey! Yes honestly it does! (the two centre pics are white paper and black paper)
As I’d already done this last year I had a go at trying to get it right first time and also a small collection of grey things.
That’s all for this week!
