I think I can

Last night was the last night of my beginner photography course. It was a long 8 weeks. The class started out really very slow and a little remedial. Because lets face it some of us our savvy with the workings of simple things like memory cards and batteries and some aren't. I see why all of this mentioned need to be explained.

Last night we met by the Train Station and did a night shoot. This was the most fun we had the whole 8 weeks. Actually taking photos and applying what we have learned about light and shutter speed. I have posted some photos for you to see. It is just utterly amazing with the light and inner workings of the camera can produce.

(just worth noting, the first train that came by scared me shitless. Those caltrains have a lot of power)( on a good note, I found a new bakery, with turkey and brie sandwiches and just yummy godness)

I look forward to taking the next course in the summer. This class will be the one where we can actually apply all that we have learned in this class.

After you take a photography class, I don't think you ever look through the lens the same. As well as look at someone else's photography the same.

Here are some photos of our downtown area, the local courthouse and some other landmarks. All of these photos were taken at around 8pm. So it was really dark out.


This picture is a little fuzzy, but if you can beleive it this photo was taken at night. The sky was black.

This photo is from downtown and give you an idea of what the photo would look like with out the proper adjustments

Here are two photos after proper adjustments.

You have the eye for a good photo thats for sure! I'm so envious of your classes! I guess I could say I'm also jealous you have the scenery like that to shoot. Much prettier than snow dunes, and salt covered cars that I have here.
