This week my photography course has reached the subject that I am in dire need of getting my head round, it's where I'm stepping out of my comfort zone, and have to move the control away from Auto.
We've to start thinking about Fstops and shutter speeds. I've read it through and done a few practice shots and I think I'm slowly but surely starting to understand it. I've done one of my end-of-week assignment shots of a dripping tap, which has come out better than I could have hoped.
Another option for the assignment was to shoot highly reflective materials. I couldn't actually find anything that fitted the bill, but I liked the idea of reflections anyway, so I took myself out early this morning and took these shots, which show home in a completely different light.
Last year I did a short course at Wiltshire College in Trowbridge, it was called "Digital Photography for Dummies", (at least thats what I think it was called) and one week we had a field trip to Bradford-on-Avon, where I took lots of shots of reflections in the river, come back tomorrow and I'll show you some of them.
