I have been so busy lately, mostly running around like a headless chicken not doing what I planned, that I haven't got around to telling you about an awesome thing I did on 1st October.
I was invited by JoeBlogs and Transun to a photography workshop, in Cardiff. Transun offer Experience holidays, including trips to the Northern Lights, here's what they had to say about the night: Transun Photography.
Simon was the lovely gentleman who took the workshop, he was so full of valuable information. Unfortunately, my camera is a bridge camera (not as basic as snap and go, but not as advanced as a DSLR), this meant that some of the things he was teaching us about, couldn't be done on my camera.
He did, however, give us a fact sheet. So,
when if I get a better camera, I will have some idea of what I'm doing. For now, I did get some great tips on what ISO meant, which I can change on my camera, I even managed to get some motion shots!
Here are some of the pictures I took on the night:
|Yes, I was taking pictures of my bag. At one point|
I was taking photos of butter!
|I was super proud of this! DSLR cameras could capture|
even more light movement.
|I'm particularly proud of this one. I captured the movement of light, but you can't actually see the person holding the light!|
|Another one I'm proud of. I caught the details of my fingers, with all|
the background out of focus.
|Finally, this one from the night. Because I didn't know|
my camera could do this!!
Here are some of the pictures I've taken since
fiddling learning what my camera is capable of:
|This is totally unedited, I was so pleased with the detail.|
|I am yet to capture a good moon shot, but I loved this one, so atmospheric.|
|Finally, a picture that is my favourite out of all I have ever captured.|
I love the lights. If you look closely, you can see it is just a petrol station!
The night taught me so much! Above all, it taught me not to fear my camera, it's not going to fall apart in my hands, just because I've changed a setting.............Honest!
