Since neither of us had trick or treating plans, I met Suzanne for our first DSLR Photography Lesson in downtown St. Petersburg early in the Halloween evening. There was surprisingly little spooky activity happening and no one in costume to photograph. Still, we managed to practice no less than five shooting techniques in our first of four 2-hour lessons!
Suzanne was already familiar with some photography terms and just needed clarifying and instruction on how they all tie together, especially in the DSLR world. Also, since she already knew how to change some of these settings on her Canon XS, we were able to practice more than usual in a first lesson, especially since the early sunset time in late October afforded a chance to practice motion blur shots.
I look forward to our next lessons which will cover photographing sunsets, action shots and more!
