Andrea and I broke new ground again for a DSLR Photography Lesson location, this time downtown Tampa in and around historic Tampa Theatre (our 6th lesson!). Andrea did her homework and got a nearly perfect score on the photography quiz I sent her. Our last lesson was in rain and some of the least ideal conditions for photography possible. This time things were totally opposite with blue skies and nice temperatures. The only thing that was missing was . . . people!
Andrea wanted to start with practicing street photography, but unfortunately downtown Tampa was nearly desolate. However, with some strategic searching and quick fingers to the shutter button, Andrea got a great shot of a cyclist heading uphill with a cool city bokeh background.
We then returned to practicing manual focus of her Nikkor 50mm f/1.8D lens. Andrea was greatly improved from last time. We found an interesting sculpture to practice on first, then went on to shooting the Tampa Theatre itself.
I believe Andrea has been steadily improving and I am excited to see her shots from today's lesson.
