Cupcake treat

8 week online workshop lesson 2 More Camera Settings On our way home from ballet this afternoon I bought Tiffany a cupcake. She thought it was so beautiful and asked me to take a photo of it. By the time I picked up the camera she had it unwrapped and was starting to demolish it! She was so quick that I didn’t have time to adjust the camera settings – my white balance was set for outsi... »

Histograms

Histograms

8 week online workshop lesson 2 6 – histograms I took these images when we were outside playing this morning. Clare was sitting at the bottom of the slide (the green you can see) and was looking at Louise playing off to the right of us. 1/100 f11 ISO 400. Histogram shows mostly mid tones, but on the far right in the light side there is a line going straight up of the chart. Louise on the sli... »

Bright skies & Shadows

Bright skies & Shadows

8 week online workshop lesson 2 5 – Exposure This one took quite a while to complete. I experimented with different shadows and brightnesses but these are the images I liked best. Image one is Lou sitting on Daddy’s shoulders. Image 2 1/500 f5.0 Exp +1/3 ISO 100 Image 2 1/320 f5.0 Exp +1 ISO 100. Image 3 is Clare in the shadow of a tree 1/800 f5.8 Exp -1 ISO 100. »

Bowling

Bowling

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 pic... »

Noise

Noise

8 week online workshop lesson 2 4 – noise I liked the sample image in this topic so rereated my own… I took the images indoors, at 1/60, f8 and the first few images were so dark they barely show a thing. This first image in this collage is ISO 800,then 1600, 3200 and 6400 respectively. I can definitely see the ‘graininess’ in the higher ISO images, though I saved this as a ... »

Ribbons in the wind

Ribbons in the wind

8 week online workshop lesson 2 3 – movement I struggled to find ‘movement’ pictures that I was happy with. Took plenty of trees moving in the wind, but they looked boring – blurred in the right places but just not nice enough to warrant being uploaded. I had an idea to get ribbons waving in the wind, but again these haven’t worked quite the way I wanted. Maybe the ri... »

Big Lamb

Big Lamb

8 week online workshop lesson 2 Depth of Field I really enjoyed this topic – particularly because I have a bit of an addiction to high apertures! Big Lamb is the larger version of Louise’s constant companion ‘Lamby’. He is still white and fluffy where Lamby is well loved / travelled / washed / squashed / trodden on etc. The first picture was f4.5, ISO 100, 1/800 and was con... »

orchids

orchids

8 week online workshop lesson 2 depth of field I kept waiting for a great shot for this challenge. I was picturing more of a landscape to take advantage of different depths of field. It’s just too cold, rainy and icy here in DC so I gave up and went to a botanical garden for some fun shots today. The first shot of orchid was a close up taken with my 35mm at F/1.8, 1/3200s and ISO at 800. I w... »

8 week online workshop lesson 2 exposure triangle Once again my subjects are not overly compliant… but it is the same lighting for all 3 pictures, so the exercise worked well. Had a play around after this and took more over-exposed pictures 🙂 This was a fun exercise, meddling around with how things look 🙂 »
