If you can remember a few weeks ago I posted some photo’s of beautiful ladies in cocktail dresses. Well with the cocktail dresses I still had a working flash.
When it got to the evening dresses my external flash batteries was dead and I tried to take some photo’s with my camera’s built in flash but for the distance I had to zoom it was far to weak.
I had to expand my photography boundaries and tried something new. I took photo’s in manual mode without a tripod and only the knowledge of an article or two I read on this type of photography a while back…
I must be very honest with you and I think I have right to brag… My photo’s came out stunning!!!
Now if I can only get the opportunity to practice some more…. I think I can show some of the photographers with their degrees in photography a thing or two. I am proud to say that I am a self taught photographer. My friend showed me the basics and the rest of my knowledge I got from reading articles in photography magazines and on the internet.
If I am uncertain about what to do for a upcoming photo shoot, I go to my computer. Google is a wonderful tool to have I just type in the topic I want to research and within seconds it gives you lists and lists of articles on the topic. I then grab my “boyfriend” and start practicing. I use the information I gathered as a guideline and then I start playing with my camera’s settings. I believe in practice, practice, practice and practice oh and then once more practice. I don’t think that any photographer out there can stop practicing. Well maybe I am the only one that thinks like that.
Okay you waited long enough here are the photo’s I took of the lovely ladies in their evening dresses.
