8 week online workshop
lesson 2
3: movement

I thought that I could experiment with different shutter speeds at the bowling alley, but it proved more difficult than I expected. The lighting was less than ideal. I tried to try to capture the pins falling down, but didn’t bring my zoom lens and they were very dark. (I was focused on capturing Ryan’s first time bowling). Instead I took pictures of the bowlers. The first shot is my dad, taken with me 35mm at 1/160s, F/4.5 and ISO3200. It is grainy and his hand looks blurred. I had trouble trying to focus on him as he moved, so I probably should have taken it off of single-point focus. The second shot is Ryan, also with my 35mm at 3200 ISO, but at 1/250s and F/3.2. I think that speed worked a little better. I’m anxious for our temperatures to get above freezing so we can do more things outside and use some daylight in my photos!

My husband, John, and I have been blessed with two wonderful children. Ryan is 4 and Rebecca is 1 and they keep me very busy, but I love it. We live outside of Washington D.C. with our dog Cooper.
