I had my 3rd class last night. It was at our Capitol Building downtown. I was pretty excited to finally get out there and take some pictures. Because as much as I like hearing a seasoned pro talk, I really like to practice and get feedback!
We started at 6:30pm and I didn't leave until I had filled my 8 gig CF card (which was 9:15pm). Had a blast and these are the ones I liked and edited.
Obviously not asking for CC on all, but if you could look at the set and maybe comment on just one or two (they're numbered)? That would be wonderful!
Thanks so much.
Jennifer, I will take a quick peek but I have to get cracking on my editing and need to get the heck away from all of my boards! ha ha ha
Will be back in a minute to tell you what I think. But I am so glad the class is doing so much for you, I love your enthusiasm in your post.
NICE!! Love the first shot with the flag in it and your sunbursts are great. The shots with the street lights look so cool! What's the story behind the figure 8 lights?
Thanks so much, Gwen. I've got to print out at least 24 shots for our final class (which I'll have to miss because I'll be in Miami ) I'll have to get some of everyone's favorites and print those.
The three light photos are my brother and I goofing off. I had been taking timed exposures of passing cars and getting the cool light affect of the head and tail lights (none turned out very exciting). I found my flashlight in my bag and asked my brother to waive it around while I took a long exposure. Those were the results. I have a few other cool ones, but I figured 3 was more than plenty to add to the set. I still think their neat
I love the long exposure shots. I saw a set once where someone had their mom write their name in the air with a sparkler and she took a long exposure shot of it - it looked so cool!
My "babies" are Abigail (6/06) and Caleb (1/08 )
the light painting is really cool, but I have to say that the sunbursts are my favorite.
looks like class is going really well for you!
Ahhh there's that cute brother of yours again haha. I LOVE your night photos as well. I hope to try that out myself soon because you've inspired me! Did you use a tripod?
My favorites are #11, 15, and 20.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. I really do like the night exposures too.
I did use a tripod for every picture once it started getting dark. My shutter speeds were mostly longer than half a second, so to get a nice crisp pic I had to have the camera on a tripod. I Really want a remote now. It wasn't bad with the 2 second timer, but it would have been nice to set the shot and then just take the picture remotely.
