This looks like low to the horizon light of some sort and it would have been nice to have captured a bit more of it. I will ignore the sunnies as there is nowt to be done re those little charmers.

You've caught the profile and the hands really well. My only hassle is with the context which to me is a little busy. Not sure what you could have done to reduce this though: I like the angle from the side and too much front on would not have been good for the hands.

These are grab shots, taken quickly from wherever I could get a shot without anyone in the way, it was in the OH bar late afternoon so people everywhere. Unfortunately, by this time he'd seem me so was a little self conscious. I've got others that are more natural but out of focus or compositionally not as good.

Julie said...

Off the top of your head, can you remember the four categories of shots we had to bring to class on Thursday night? I've left my notes at home.
One: shallow depth of field
Two: long depth of field
Three: motion blur the moving item
Four: motion blur the background.

Something like that I think ...

Ann said...

This is from my notes:

1. extensive DOF
2. shallow DOF
(both Av mode)

3. motion as blur
4. frozen motion
(both Tv mode)

Ann said...

Pretty sure its not blurring the background in the 4th one, just using a fast shutter speed to freeze motion.

Julie said...

Beauty bottler ... shall see if I can knock a couple of those off over my lunch break ...

Taa ... I shall do 4 as both versions because I be a wimp and like to cover all bases!

Ann said...

How are you going to do that using shutter speed?

Julie said...

I thought that 4th one was panning. No?

Ann said...

No, we haven't done panning yet. Its using shutter speed to blur and freeze motion (using the Tv setting on the camera) and trying different shutter speeds. I think he was talking about panning in connection with the visit to Centennial Park in a couple of weeks.

Ann said...

At least that's what my notes lead me to believe. (not sure about the Centennial Park bit - didn't write that down).

Julie said...

Yikes!

Okie dokie ... shall give it a burl ... and then cry for help this arvo when necessary!!

Ann said...

Pretty happy with the results I got on Friday. I'm off to Ted's to figure out how to use those machines. Can you believe I've never printed a shot from digital before.

Julie said...

Done!

Took about 50 shots all up. Will pick'n'choose this evening.

The Tv was easier than the Av ... but I persevered and think I go tht hang of it. Required that I go closer to the focus point. Shall read about the other impacts on DoF and see if I can duplicate those tomorrow.

Ann said...

I think I took about 30. TV was definitely easier as my lens does not have a good wide aperture so a lot of the time I couldn't tell if it worked or not. I've ended up with 8 (4 sets of 2) that I think demonstrate what he wanted. With Av I've got one set that worked, another that I like but I'm not sure if it worked and two completely different shutter speed sets. Yet to see how they come out printed - pick them up tomorrow.
