Recently I took a photography class and I can’t express how much that I have learned from it. This is homework from a class covering “flash”.
This is a subject where I have needed a lot of help. I can’t count the number of pictures that I have taken at family gatherings and cookouts that have turned out like this one below.
The background is black and the subject is blinded from the flash going off directly in their face. It doesn’t even have to be technically dark outside for the background to be black.
Well this particle session of the class has changed my mamarazzi days forever. I learned how to capture the beautiful Oklahoma sunsets in the background while still being able to capture everyone’s faces.
However, it wasn’t that long ago that when I tried to take a picture with the sun setting in the background and the picture above was the result of my feeble attempt.
Now I get to rejoice and capture shots with color like this one.
Isn’t God an absolutely amazing artist!!! Fall sunsets are one of the most brilliant works of art. Absolute perfection.
Now that I have this new found knowledge I can’t wait to take a million pictures of my kids and husband during sunsets. Guess what kids, you now have a later bedtime! Yes, for real. You can thank Mommy’s photography teacher for that.
Just in case anyone was wondering, I took my classes at Aperature Photo in Tulsa. I highly recommend anyone who owns a digital SLR camera and lives in the Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas, or Arkansas area to take this class. My instructor, Zane, is pictured above and if you do decided to take one of his classes, please tell him that Jessica Stubbs sent you.
He may not remember me by name, he does have quite a few students. However, if you tell him what camera that I use he just might remember.
Thought for the post:
If he knew that I was going to post my homework on my blog, I wonder if he would have volunteered to model while teaching class?
Until Next Time.
