Out and About – Me and My Camera

Hello Lovelies, 

Hope you all had a lovely bank holiday weekend. 

Last Wednesday was the last week at college for half term and it was such a nice evening our tutor decided it would be nice to go out and take some photographs. 

I am still learning to use the different settings so the photos are a work in progress….

Until I started studying Photography I had always used the automatic settings I feel like I have learnt so much already and I’ve only been at college a few weeks. Some of the things we have been taught so far at college are the Exposure Triangle, Shutter Speed, Aperture, ISO and before the break we worked on White Balance we have studied Depth Of Field and  looked at using Manual getting full control of the camera.

Here are some of the photos I have taken I thought I’d show you something that isn’t Beauty or Fashion….

At college we worked on Exposure and what we would have to do if we wanted a photo to be a bit darker or lighter and these first 2 photos are the outcome. I really like the look of the Over Exposed Photo which is the first photo. It kind of looks like a thunder storm is brewing. The second photo is Under Exposed.

This photo of the fire truck and the bridge has to be one of my favourite photos that I took I didn’t think I would take it in time .IMG_1329IMG_1341

I also love this little cottage on the canal I would love to live there, there was some boats on this canal too which were really nice you can just see one in  the distance if you look under the bridge on the above photo where the fire truck is. 

Finally is a photo of me with my camera the lens on this camera is the kit lens of 18-55MM but when I got my camera you also got a longer lens of 55MM – 250MM (I think it is) So I have just changed lenses over to see what kind of shots I can get with that. I am loving photography at the moment it’s something to focus on it has been such a bad year this year so it’s good that I have something I enjoy. Hopefully as I get into Photography my photos will improve this is why I wanted to start this Photography Diary to see what my photos were like during the course and how I improved. 

I also went to Southport with my mum and took quite a few photos of Southport Pier I will be showing these in a seperate post. 

Hope your all well….

Andrea
