Photos From Photography Class

Digital Photography Class / December 29th, 2013

We can read as much as we can about whatever subject we want to; but having an experienced teacher helps you to put everything you’ve learned in to perspective. If you would like to read a short article I’ve written about my instructor click here. Unfortunately, I did not take many photos in between class because I was busy learning and paying close attention to what the teacher was saying. In this picture, we were practicing using various apertures settings, which create really nice bokeh effects. Bokeh is a very common type of photography; when the subject is sharply focused, and the background is blurred. Bokeh is one of my favorite styles of photography. Of course there are several software you can use to easily produce bokeh with; but, doing it with your DSLR camera is a much better quality, with out spending hours on the computer trying to produce a natural and crisp looking bokeh (I find that this requires a lot of practice, depending on the photo). It was really wonderful being amongst other aspiring photographers.

Here, I was playing around with the shutter speed. I actually was able to catch a few ripples of rain drops.

I coudn't resist a picture of the Tourneau Watch store. Their store sign looked amazing, and I was drawn to it.

I wasn't photographically attracted to this scene, however, I shot it anyway, because it was the first time I saw shirts in glass showcasing.

I hated the colors of this paint. However, I shot it because I was attracted to the text.

It was a shame this was such a rainy day, this photo would have been beautiful.
