Photography Practice

I fell behind in my photography lessons, so I am taking advantage of some time off from the day job to play through some lessons.

So please bear with me while I share what I am learning.

I have never used a tripod, or a self-timer with my photography.  So I am learning to become familiar with both of these tools, and combine them with a slow shutter speed.

Turns out that this is fun!

All I had were two flash lights to play with for light painting.

I may have to invest in a variety of lights!

I also went to one of my favorite places to practice these elements.  I have shared Douglas Falls with you before.  Click here and here.

Driving back home, Hubby and I pulled over and took the time to snap a couple of cloudy evening shots of Lake Roosevelt (formed by the Columbia River).

  1. Love the light ones, very effective. I’ve always wanted to try and get the moving water effect but I’ve never had a tripod with me at the time!

  3. Definitely time well spent learning how to get the maximum from your camera equipment, especially if it involves visiting such beautiful places.
    And in these very unsettling times it’s good to get absorbed in learning new things.

    • Thank you, Allison! Photography gets me out of the house and away from the day job, too. I may not be great at it, but it is refreshing and fun to learn! 🙂
