On Saturday I took a class from Nicole Hill (Photography 101). It was an all day class from 9-4 where we learned a lot about how to shoot manually and also learned lighting techniques and a few other things. Nicole is an amazing photographer and was an awesome teacher and very nice and down to earth.
I can't believe how much I learned! She explained things so well and made everything I have learned and that I learned from her just come together and make sense! I am so happy I was able to do it.
Trey and Allie got to have a daddy-daughter day and they had fun. They went down to Grandma and Grandpa's and also went to some friends' to watch the BYU game. I met up with them there after my class and got to watch the last half of the game.
I took these pics of Allie on Sunday after church. I can't believe how much my pictures have improved since taking the class! I really couldn't be happier about it.
It was hard to get a good one of Allie because she is so active and won't look at me anymore. I have been having some focusing issues lately because my Nikon D100 has a pretty bad lens on it and it is a harder camera to focus than most. I am hoping to get a new lens soon, once I know what I want, and get the hang of focusing on my camera.
All I did to these pics was sharpen them a little. There are just a couple I lightened, but the exposure and coloring looked great on all of them right out of the camera! That doesn't happen often for me!
I am excited to keep refining my skills and eventually be the photographer I want to be!
No, my husband doesn't wear jerseys...just on game days :)
