I met Betty at the usual downtown St. Petersburg spot for our first DSLR Photography Lesson together. She has a Canon T1i, a DSLR I have gotten quite familiar with due to numerous students having that specific camera. We went to many of the same spots I take first-time students too, but we also had a chance to do a little event photography practice as it was the day before Halloween and something was happening in the Straub Park areas. We put both of her lenses to use throughout the lesson, including teaching good lens changing technique.
Betty seemed to absorb all we covered during the 2-hour lesson very well and I am looking forward to seeing her improved photographs and our next lesson!
