OK! So here we are with week two of my photography class: Photographic Principle: Shutter Speed. I can tell you that I'm going to be doing a LOT of practice with these settings!! Actually, I can tell you that I'll be doing that with all of the assignments, just because shooting in manual is so new. But it's so awesome to be in control!! In fact, I was practicing my singular theme photos this weekend on my sisters daffodils, and she said "Oh -- are you using the MACRO button?" I got to smile :) and say, "No, manual!!" We've been in WY this weekend for Easter, so had limited opportunities for photos. Limited time, rather, I guess. Anyways, here are my submissions for this week:
FROZEN ACTION images
Post one IMPLIED MOTION image:
My submission for this one is of my uber-adorable great niece, Miss Penny. She was 5 mo. on the 18th, and is into waving her arms when you talk to her! So stinkin' cute! Just love her to pieces. If you look at her left hand, it's blurred while the rest of her is in focus:
Post one PANNING image:
Ok, I have to admit I am extra proud of this -- even though it was a fluke. Second panning picture I tried, and I think it came out pretty darn good!! I tried several closer photos after that, but blurred my nephew as well as the background in all of them. Will have to keep practicing -- but am thrilled to share this with you all!
So, there you have week two!! Many thanks to my nephew, Nicholas, and my other nephew, Chris and his beautiful wife Summer for sharing their sweet Penny with me and letting me post these pictures. Till next week, friends and fellow photogs! Namaste!
