I am a mom of two boys. Oscar 4 and Thomas 7 months We've been back in Australia for 12 months before that England.


  1. Very tough lighting conditions you’ve used to practice this one Deb 🙂 The much lighter background is correctly exposed but your parents’ (I presume) faces are a bit dark in both. The second is much better though. I guess you used spot metering on that one. When you get to the next Lesson we’ll delve into exposure much more so this should get easier. We’ll also have a whole week working on lighting and how to handle tough lighting conditions like this.
    And don’t worry about falling behind – you have 6 months!

  2. I love the pictures! I have the same problem with the dark faces in certain settings!

  3. Its my mom and her new man lol. I did change it to spot metering on purpose I was quite proud of myself but they didn’t turn out as well as I hoped they are happy with the pictures though x

  4. I fell behind this week too, so I just posted this same lesson. I agree that while the spot metering definitely helps, shots in the bright sun against the water are difficult. Can’t wait to learn more in lesson two. Good job capturing the shots.
