I recently got a DSLR camera. I've always loved photography. Sometimes my students ask me what I would have been if I wasn't a teacher...and I usually mention photography. After Christmas I got a f/1.8 lens...this lens has a lower f-stop, which means it's a high aperture lens, which means it lets in way more light than a normal lens, which means it has a smaller depth of field, which means it will focus on an object and the background becomes blurry, which means really nice portrait shots. Was that confusing? I try to only shoot in manual mode. I've been practicing my hobby of doing portrait shots and here are some samples of what I've done...
|This is Sam & Emily. They were my first "photoshoot"!|
|Tyler and Melissa. I love this pose!!!|
|My mom and dad. I couldn't believe how natural they were in front of the camera.|
|This was taken with a wireless remote and a tripod!|
|Well....Rollin wanted a model pic. I think this one's pretty good!|
|Another wireless remote and tripod.|
Almost all of these pictures were taken in Lemontree park. I have found my secret spots that have AMAZING backdrops for photos.
