I've been taking literally hundreds of photos each week since I started the photography class. Thank goodness for digital technology.
This past week we learned about composing photos, so I've been playing around with that a bit. It's a lot of fun to be able to get the camera to do what I want now. Being able to see the wings of the bee on this flower was awesome. (Click to embiggen.)
And last week's assingment was a lot of fun also -- taking photos in the dark. Since it was the week of the 4th of July, there were plenty of fireworks to photograph.
It was especially fun playing with long exposures so that multiple fireworks appeared in one photograph.
This week is portraits, which is much more difficult for me. At least learning about light is helping me to get better shots, but I'm still pretty bad at posing people and my teenager loses patience quickly when I'm fiddling with my settings.
