We started by learning the basic skilled that are required to be able to use your camera in full 'manual mode' and to capture images that are correctly exposed, portray depth of field and capture motion. We did this by learning about exposure, aperture, depth of field and F-Stop and shutter speed.
Whilst I will be the first to admit that these aren't the greatest photos ever taken, I am still extremely proud that I have been able to capture them while using my Canon 600d in manual mode... something that up until last week I would have thought of as a daunting prospect.
Row 1 = Varying Depths of Field, Narrow, Medium and Wide
Row 2 = Over Exposed, Under Exposed & Correctly Exposed
As you can see I have been busy trying to get to grips with the basics and have been taking my camera out and about to various places and happily snapping away. I really cannot wait to see how my photography develops over the next few weeks and I can't wait to learn more and more tips and techniques from Erin.
Stay tuned for more photos from Lesson No. 2... lighting!!!
