Advanced Exposure Techniques

Somehow I found 3 hours on Friday night to attend a photography course at Henry’s—Advanced Exposure Techniques. Great course.

I’m one of those people that always used the automatic settings on my Canon Rebel SLR film camera until I made the switch to digital—Canon Digital Rebel XT. Being able to review my photos immediately on an LCD screen allows me to be more creative and experiement.

Having a better understanding of exposure mechanics has helped me a great deal in taking better pictures (okay debatable). Finding the time to take photos is my biggest challenge at the moment. The only way I’m going to improve is by taking a lot more photos and learn from my mistakes.

At the moment I can’t get enough of British photography magazines. There seems to be an endless supply of them on the newstands and I’m slowly weeding out the good ones. I’m also reading the owner’s manual for the Rebel XT as if it was the latest Dan Brown novel.

I must have taken a couple of hundred photos over the weekend but have only posted a couple at Bombippy Photos. I’m becoming a lot more selective on what I post these days—quality over quantity. Even then, I know that these aren’t great photos but I’m learning. You get to watch if you like.
