First attempt at Light Painting

Christmas day my older brother and i decided to try Light painting. Light painting is when you take your camera and put it on a long exposure and then go into your photo and use light to outline shapes, draw things, or write things. Light painting is a neat way to add bright shapes, and colors into your photos. My first attempt was just out lining a pool table, then drawing shapes on a white wall. heres a few examples of what we created!

Winterim Day 2

Today we learned about the Exposure triangle. The Exposure triangle consists of shutter speed, aperture, and iso. Learning about the iso triangle is very confusing at first, but with a little bit of effort and work it can be easy to understand. when you talk about aperture you are talking about F/Stop which is a fraction, they usually go up by doubles of halves. An example is f/2.8. f/4, f/5.6,f/8. The next section of this triangle is shutter speed. this ranges from 1/60th of second and lower to about 1/8000, which is very fast. Shutter speed can be set to very fast of very slow, to 30 seconds. The third is ISO, which is sensitivity. This section ranges from 100 to 3200, or less sensitive to very sensitive.

For this mornings photoshoot we could only use our cameras in M mode(manuel mode) and had to show DOF(depth of Field).Heres a few photos i took during the day today! Tell me what you think!

Winterim: Day 1

Today was the first day of my month long action photography course at school. today they gave us 1 hour to walk around the school grounds and take pictures. heres a few that i took. i will try to keep updated with this, and try to show you some pictures everyday. today we were only allowed to use the auto setting on our dslr cameras making it a little more difficult.

I decided to throw in at the last second a picture i edited for fun with the Instructor of the course. Hope you like!

Photo Entry 1:River Walks

Strangely over the month of october i have taken 2 walks along the Maumee river, i guess its not strange cause i live on the river; But what is weird is that im out and on a walk. So instead of writing a boring essay on my walk i decided to do a photo journal of both my walks.The first 9 pictures were taken in my backyard, the second ten were taken down in Waterville, Ohio. Enjoy!!
