Moments That Matter: lesson 1: topic 2: more camera settings

Working in auto for all pics.
1 – Gardening Success. Daughter had just dug up potatoes, the light was soft, dreamy. Truthfully a lucky shot.
2- Determination. Son cutting out bush. Have been focusing on ‘filling the frame’ and happy with the difference it makes
3- Possibilities. Daughter planning her garden, quiet contemplation, warm colours.
4 – Working together. Brothers building together, filling the frame and somehow the bush behind became soft.

  1. How lucky you are to have so many models to practice your photography on. I look forward to getting to know them all better through your images. Now is the time to start learning so I’ll be giving you some suggestions to work on for the following lessons. In the first image be a bit careful where you cut off limbs. Cutting someone at the ankles is not the best as it feels a little like a mistake. Either keep all of the feet in or get in a bit closer and cut at mid shin or thigh. There’s more coming up on that in a future lesson. Love the second and third images. They follow the rule of thirds and this gives them impact. The second image – getting closer – is my favourite of all of these. You’ve captured a real moment that is precious. The last image is bit washed out (colour wise) which you’ll better be able to control when you start using other settings and learn how to best use light in upcoming lessons. All in all, a great job. Look forward to seeing more.
