We picture this

I'm taking a photography class and I'm soooo thrilled and happy that I did it. I'm shooting totally in the manual mode, I know I would have NEVER gotten out of the auto modes without this class. We have assignments every week and these were the pictures i took for this weeks assignments, only in black and white. Megan is only too happy to be my model !

This is a site with some amazing photography on it.

I know some of them are blurry in spots. I was using my 50 MM 1:1.4 lens (which I LOVE!) and was not using the focus right on it.

Nikon D80
Mode: Manual
Exposure: 1/1000
ISO: 200
Aperture: 1.8
Focal length: 50mm

Rebecca said...

Wow, I LOVE the black and white you submitted!! My favorite part is her arms, helping her balance - it brings it to life!

Congrats on your class, and getting out of auto - you'll never go back. :)

Thank you so much for joining our theme this month!

Your photos are beautiful. Photography class must be a lot of fun. I think your doing a great job. I've never heard of this contest before. I've been entering another contest called I Heart Faces. It's a lot of fun! I'll have to try this one too.

I love your b & w image. Looks like a picture from the 1940's. So cool.
