Photography Lesson 3: Landscape Photography

For Lizette’s third photography lesson I decided that a field trip will be the practical thing to do. I took her to Melkbos, Blaauwberg, Table View and on our way back we stopped on the Vissershok Road and at Clara Anna Fontein.

At Melkbos Lizette had to take some landscape photo’s using her tripod and  her 18-55mm lens.  She had to move around and capture the area from different spots.  She also had to play with her ISO and her Aperture Priority.  She had to make sure that the photo are in focus and also at the right exposure. To get this right she had to play with her ISO and F-Stop settings.

Here are some of my photo’s taken at Melkbos also using my Takara Tripod, My Canon EOS 7D and my Canon 18-200mm lens.

Here I borrowed Lizette my Sigma 70-300mm.  She was in love with the lens. The main reason I think is because she could zoom in. Again she had to use her tripod and also do some free hand shots of birds in flight.  We also had to test our patience to get some nice splashes against the rocks.

Here are a few of my photo’s taken at Blaauwberg.

After our shoot at Blaauwberg we went to Table View were we had a light lunch and the I went and took some photo’s of the ship wreck. I’ll post a series of the ship wreck over the years one of these days.

Sibling shoot of Marianna & Welmien

I had the privilege to capture these two sisters a few weeks ago.

We had quite a few laughs and Welmien is another character. She had me in stitches…

Here is a few of their photo’s.
