Oh Shoot, Week 5: Lighting

Yikes... the lighting lesson. I need this. I had not figured out what White Balance was or how to change it on my camera. This by far has been the most challenging for me.. and I still need a ton of practice...

Like I said, these are not great... but they are cute kids! :) I still need to figure out lighting more and play with it.... but now I do know how to adjust my WB, and know what the symbols mean!! :) That is a start!!

Oh Shoot Week 4: Focus

So, week four was all about focus, changing focal points, etc. So, our assignment was to capture pictures using one of two focal point techniques, ensuring your focal point is not in the center of the picture..
Actually, this was technicaly easier than I thought.. now I need to work on the creative aspect of how to compose the picture... Though, I may need new subjects to finish my class.... my current models are about to go on strike!!!

Missing Home.

You know when you are born and raised somewhere, how it becomes a part of you...?? Well, that is how it is to be from Alaska. It is part of me. When I left, I think I knew I would not move back there to live.. at least not for a very long time. I have fallen in love with Oregon and living in the "lower 48" and the freedom to travel so much easier. Also, I have adjusted and become wimpy and enjoy the mild climate.

Yet there are times when I miss home... so much that I dream about it. Right now I am missing it.....

I found this video.... it is amazing.
