Another week has come and gone. Thank you to our hosts, Marvelous Mommy, Sarah, and Angie. for coming up with themes that make me think and challenge me. This week our theme was Long Exposure. Now when I was doing my online photography course I did learn some about playing with the exposure. However, when you live in the middle of a bunch of corn fields getting the shot is not always easy to do. So I am sad to say- I did not get any fresh shots this week. I do however, have some shots from the past that I personally love so I will share them with you. Since we are talking exposure I will also put my camera settings with the picture. I use a Canon T4i for my photography.
This first one is from our trip to Kansas City last summer. It was the view from our hotel room and as a city girl- I was in love. It was absolutely beautiful to me. My camera was set up with an ISO of 100, f/4, with an 8 sec exposure time. The dark line you see on the bottom was me using the window ledge as the tripod since I did not have one. But I still love how this one turned out. This was after my photography courses. I still have some improvement to do.
This one was actually taken a few years ago during my classes on exposure. THe setting that got this was f/16, ISO 100, exposure of 4 seconds. This waterfall is one that can be found in our Lied Jungle at the Henry Doorley Zoo. We love going there and seeing all the rainforest animals and the waterfalls. Then again we love going to the zoo in general! (it makes for some good picture taking!).
So those are my long exposure. This is something I will be continuing working on as I want to improve my night photography and capture the beautiful stars that we see out here in the middle of no where.
Feel free to link up your pictures HERE!
Next week’s theme is COLORFUL so get out there and capture the colors of summer!
