I've missed this little space... This space to journal and record projects, events, ideas... I know the space has always been here... it's me who's gone missing! Well... here I am! :)
What's going on? ... I've been enrolled in a digital SLR photography class for the last three weeks. I am LOVING it! It's called "Oh Shoot!" and the instructor is Candice Stringham. It's been terrific! I am taking that leap from only using my fancy camera in Automatic mode to the BIG "M!" I just completed Week 3... This is the week we made the jump to full manual. I've taken lots of photos... Practicing! Here are my favorite three from the week!
I LOVE my orchids! This one just opened a couple days ago... (These are the settings I used when taking this photo: Shutter Speed: 1/80 Aperture: f/2.0 ISO: 200 Focal Length: 50mmWhite Balance: Tungsten light)
We got a PUPPPPPYYYYYY!!!! His name is Clark! I've been taking lots of pictures of the newest member of our family! (Settings: Shutter Speed: 1/125 Aperture: f/2.0 ISO: 100 Focal Length: 50mm White Balance: Shade)
My babies!!! I am sooo happy to be taking this class! I've loved learning about depth of field, apertures, shutter speeds, etc. (Settings: Shutter Speed: 1/100 Aperture: f/3.5 ISO: 200 Focal Length: 50mm White Balance: Shade)
It's nice to be back...
