Now that I have my super-duper Canon Rebel, I’ve been trying to learn how to properly use it. (Having a pricey professional camera and leaving it on auto is like buying a Viking when you don’t know how to cook.) I’ve always loved photography and I wish it was something I had explored more “professionally” when I was younger, apart from playing around with my point and shoots. Of course, as I mentioned last week, my limited photography skills still produced some great art for my living room!
For the past few months, I’ve been experimenting and taking some classes with Digital Photo Academy. On Saturday, I took a “Composition in the Field” class which I had been looking forward to, because it was held in none other than my home of Hoboken. This city has always been inspiring as an amateur photographer – there is so much history and architecture. Plus, we have a better view of the NYC skyline than any New Yorker!
So here are a few shots from my class, which are also available on my online portfolio!
