A dear friend offered me photographic lessons; needless to say I jumped eagerly at the opportunity! I have had SO much fun and am eternally grateful to Moira for teaching me the full capabilities of what my camera has to offer. Only manual mode shooting for me from now on! I still have to work on my technique a bit but have the basics under my belt, now it’s just practice, practice, practice. I thought you may like to see a few of the photos I took for my last weeks homework which was all about using natural light.
Another friend graciously agreed to be my model for the morning. We had loads of fun and there was much hilarity with me telling her not to move a muscle or to drop her chin a morsel, to turn her head just a smidgen to one side or not to move anything but her eyes in one direction or another. We did land up with a few “deer in the headlights” looking shots but also managed to get a few that were good for my homework.
For a bit of fun, I started my day off with a self portrait.
Have a look-see at Moira’s blog to appreciate her fabulous photography. I will be able to take brilliant photographs like that soon too!
