I sort of cut my feet off in the lead photo, so here’s a close-up of my fringed flip-flops (and other accessories):
And I did not cut my feet off here either:
Yeah, Smunch gets some camera time.
I attended the third session of my digital photography class on Thursday. I’m definitely in the slow learner group. We were all supposed to bring in a flash drive with 10, correctly exposed photos to share with the class. At the end of class, they were shown on the screen and critiqued. I was last to go and everyone before me had absolutely gorgeous photos that they had taken on the entirely manual setting. I had five crappy shots I took on either shutter or aperture priority mode. While everyone else got comments like “Wow” and “Perfect,” my pictures were greeted with silence. I’ve got to do better on my homework this week.
I don’t dare bring in my outfit photos for the group*, but it is a good time for me to practice. I took the above photos on the shutter priority mode and went all manual, baby, for my jump shots:
The pictures aren’t perfect, but I wouldn’t have been able to take them at all in manual mode just a few weeks ago. And concentrating on ISO, shutter, aperture, and white balance completely distracted me from the fact that I did about 40 jumps, after swimming 3650 yards. Who knew that photography could be such a great workout motivator!?
*I'm a big fan of that last photo and might dare to bring it in for class, even though I didn't shoot it in the prescribed RAW format.
