Photo Friday: From the Park and Marina

This was my fourth week of photography class and our second lab. We ventured off campus this time to shoot at a nearby park with a marina.

I'm finally learning how to manually work with the exposure settings. It's still kind of a slow thought process followed by some trial and error, but it's a vast improvement over the first lab.

It was another overcast foreboding evening. Fortunately the rain held off until after the photo shoot. Still, it made for more gray photos. I played with composition to work in color, played with distance and close-ups.

The final count was around 210 photographs that I shot in those two hours. I'm even happy with how many of them came out. (Plus, no all black photos this time!)

Here are a few of my favorites:

On a related note, I am now on Flickr, so if you'd like to see some of my other photos venture on over to www.flickr.com/photos/lifeafterweb. (There is also a link in the left sidebar of this blog.)

Happy Friday!

  1. Rope on a mast...that one captures my attention. The lines, the image it creates...holding together, yet is looks old and ready to retire.

    Cool class!

  2. Thanks! We had a few shots the teacher suggested we take, but most of the time we were on our own. I like getting detail photos, so I just went around and did my thing. It has been fun.
