Towards the end of the meeting we got down to business and started learning about apertures (f-stop), depth of field, and briefly touched on shutter speeds. I need to study and play with my camera to really understand it but the light is coming on!
After I finished writing a paper today I pulled out my camera to play a bit. I tested out some of the settings I learned and actually did better at getting the camera to give me what I was actually seeing!
Pumpkin was a good model. The camera loves him. He is so photogenic! I still did a bit of processing on the RAW files in Adobe Lightroom ...the exposure wasn't perfect, but I'm learning. :)
(I really like this one!)
Between the photography club and my new software (Lightroom and CS3) I will be posting more about the technical aspects of my work. I am open to suggestions and want to learn more so please comment if you have any ideas or tips!
