Coffee + folk and blues. If I closed my eyes, I could find myself in a different place…far away. It was that good. One word: transported. I find myself being drawn away to another land.

This lesson focuses on “how to use your camera.” It discusses the various creative outlets a photographer can use to produce a “perfect” picture. The author presents the subjects of Aperture priority and Shutter Speed. The lesson teaches me how to use these two subjects to create Depth of Field (DOF). I am enjoying this course very much. I will soon be working on my first photo project. I will try to post part … Continue reading melting pot: part deux
