Photo Class: In Neon Color

I started a new photography class this week, and our first assignment is to create a composition using the rule of thirds. Since I’ve been loving all of the blog posts about neon colors lately (here, here, and here), I decided to practice this principle using a few images I had on hand that feature (or were easily converted into) neon colors. My final assignment is due on Sunday, and I’m hoping to head over to the arboretum this weekend to complete ‘my homework.’

In the meantime, here are a few shots where I practiced using ‘the grid’ to align the subject along the intersection of the lines, rather than in the center of the frame. Definitely an easy way to add visual interest to your photos. And a touch of neon never hurts either.
