So a little over a week ago, I posted a few photos I'd taken from my photography class. We'd been on a day field trip to the cactus garden.
Over the weekend, we again had a field trip. This time it was an evening into night shoot in a town called Redwood City. We started at the CalTrain station and worked our way through downtown.
Hooo boy did I struggle with this field trip. But the good kind of struggle. When the light is changing that fast, you have a lot of technical things to keep in mind. Since I'm just learning the technical things, I'm still pretty slow, so many of the photos didn't come out worth a dang.
But I learned A LOT, and that's the point.
Anyhoo, I put up another gallery of my favorite photos from the night, there are just 27 in this collection.
Here's a few to get you started. Click any of the images to see a bigger size.
Assignment here was to play with the light of sunset as it bounces off objects and buildings.
Assignment was slow shutter speed, I *love* the ping effect of the droplets! Look at the big size to really see it!!
Also a long exposure, I was trying to catch the purple light on the tables and also got some passing tailights on long exposure. I liked the effect!
I have learned so much from actually being hands on out in the field. My assignment now is to keep practicing!
