Julie (148) - Andy

Andy was a fellow student at the introductory photography course that concluded this evening after 8 weeks with Marco Bok. These were all taken this evening and I varied the settings a bit:
Top: F5.6, 1/50, ISO=800, 194mm, ExC=0
Mid left: F5.6, 1/50, ISO=1600, 250mm
Mid right: F5.6, 1/15, ISO=1600, 250mm
Bottom: F5.6, 1/25, ISO=1600, 250mm
I have another 6 shots but they are all darker than these ones. What I have done here is open the aperture as much as possible. I knew I needed to open up the ISO too - note that the ones not posted were mainly on ISO 400. The third shot is over-exposed because the s/s was too slow.

The first shot was with flash but I thought I had the ExC set to -2 but when I looked just now it was on 0. Have a couple of chances for portrait over the weekend so will try out the ExC then.

I'm getting all the benefit of the course here without actually having to go out at night.

Now there's an interesting thing: It's been forty years to materialise, but I think I have post traumatic stress disorder brought about by seven years of night school!

I really find it hard to think about going into a learning environment after dark these days... how stupid is that?

Keep up the good work educating me.

I am now looking around for the next course - intermediate - but want it to start earlier than 7:30pm!

I also want an introductory course to post processing - probably Elements. I am quite enjoying my new obsession. Some of my friends are supportive, others find it an obtrusion.

I wondered what you were doing. Are you talking about exposure compensation or flash compensation. Can't see why you would have exposure compensation to -2 in that situation.

If you find a reasonable intermediate course please let me know. APC does one but its incredibly expensive.

PS I'm sure I've seen an intro to Elements at WEA.
