    Wonderful work on this assignment.

    The purpose of this assignment was to get you thinking about the technical components of your camera and how those features impact your ability to tell a visual story. You鈥檝e done a wonderful job of showing how both a slow shutter speed can create the illusion of movement as well has how a shallow depth of field can help you isolate your main foreground object from the background. Great work.

    However, as you progress through each assignment, we鈥檒l also be looking for other technical and composition details. You haven鈥檛 even made it to your lesson on color theory, yet you鈥檝e managed to compose two images with very strong and well organized color palettes. This further helps you focus on your audience鈥檚 attention on only the critical elements of the frame.

    With your first photograph I agree with you about the noise in the image. I would re-consider this photograph in fact. It鈥檚 not the noise so much that bothers me, it鈥檚 the subtle softness of the focus. In fact,, I doubt it has anything to do with your focus. It looks like the image is slightly blurred because of the movement of the camera (and players). However, it鈥檚 not exaggerated enough to look intentional. So, In my opinion it comes across as blurry.

    However, the grain, if it鈥檚 unavoidable could help give your image a nice dirty look. For example, what about the players sitting motionless watching the game, what about the sweat on there face. What about the look in there eyes? These would be fun stories to play with and your camera wouldn鈥檛 be as limited as it would be shooting motion in a low light environment.

    Great work overall. I look forward to seeing your next assignment!
