This past weekend I had the pleasure of taking part in a photography workshop and safari, put on by Capturing True Emotion Photography Workshops. (You can check out their website here..and I definitely recommend it!) Jason found a Groupon for this workshop/safari and I was able to attend for a fraction of the actual price value. I am SO glad I went! The speaker broke down everything I was still confused on with my camera- ISO, Aperature and Shutter Speed are now my friends! I used to try and "google" as much as I could to understand how to use the different modes on my camera. I always ended up feeling more confused than before my googling. Now, I completely understand each function of my camera and how the work together and how to MAKE them work together for perfect exposure! I'm a little nervous to actually venture to "manual mode" on a real photo shoot, in case I mess up (haha)...but, I will definitely start by practicing on my favorite subject, Emilia! :)
Here is one of my favorite images from the "photo safari" (where we practiced using the techniques we learned during the morning session). I don't know this girl, but she was one of our "models" and this shot was when she had about 25 other cameras up her nose too. I love that it just looks like a beautiful, summery day!
Have a great day! (O:
