My two practice shots for the day. I went to see my friends wedding venue today and help plan some day of details. It’s a lovely place and I can’t wait for the day to arrive. It will also lend a great opportunity to practice snapping some pictures.
I was using my Canon 50mm 1.8 lens here with manual focus on my Sony NEX3 camera. I was trying to get the expose and focus right. Both of these shots have been edited some for fun but I think they came out really well.
I had a light bulb moment today when I learned that the bulb setting on my shutter speed means that I controlled the shutter when I pressed the button. The longer I pressed it the longer it was open. I really had no idea before. Wow I have learned a LOT in just a week of browsing tutorials over at CM.
Here is my practice shot for the day. Allia my cat sitting on the window sill.
Here are some practice shots after reading some forum tutorials about shooting manual. Wow were they helpful.
Here is my first photo challenge. Unconventional Self Portrait. Just diving into the photography world. I would rather be behind the camera.
