The Snapshot Focus

Today's lesson explored the snap shot perspective. The concept is how a camera has introduced the idea of spontaneity, unplanned moments, and objects cut out of the frame of view. In this case the coffee cup and the dessert plate are both cut out of view, suggesting a casual moment in time.

Also, as I had time, I drew a still life of a bowl of apples:

I am pretty pleased with how the shading, forms, and composition turned out.
