DSLR Workshop

20140109-DSLRWorkShop-002

DSLR class in Redvers, SK

Susan Hill and I ran two DSLR and Photography workshops this past week in the charming little town of Redvers, SK. The classes were held at the Redvers public library and 30 people in all took the course. It was tonnes of fun! 😎 Helping people take their camera off of Auto Mode is always such a treat. As for myself, I bought my first DSLR (Nikon D40) because I hated how slow and laggy my point and shoot was. I took a billion photos in auto mode and loved every minute of it. Nothing really changed until I got a 50mm f/1.8. Best thing ever for turning the ol’ mode dial to A mode. That’s what started my foray into being a full blown photo and exposure nerd. We introduced the participants to all the basics of ISO, Aperture and Shutter speed – knowing full well nobody is going to become a full blown M mode shooter overnight. But to have someone take me by the hand and guide me through everything would have been helpful to me when I was getting interested in photography. But we all had a blast and we will be running more classes in the future. 😀

Nice Day for a White Wedding

20130831-Taybrey-002

Riley and Taybrey had a beautiful day for a wedding back in August. It was a little blustery at first but the blue skies came out in full force and made for a lovely day.  Here’s a couple of my favorite shots from the day. I’m also partial to this cool bridal party shot featuring  a beautiful blue Pontiac. 😎 Total of 5 flashes. I earned the Joe McNally Jr. award for it! 😉
