Naomi first contacted me way back in December of 2010 about the DSLR Photography Lessons I offer. I would have to say it was the longest first contact to first lesson, but I am glad to have done so as I really like helping people to get started using their DSLRs. It was also my first time to get hands on with the Nikon D7000, which explains why it took me a bit of time to figure out how to change the focus mode on it. It seems Nikon got too clever with its switch design not bothering to even label it!
It was a very crisp 1st of December morning, with the usual brillian Florida sunshine. It was actually nice to be in the sun, which I was as we practiced using AF-C focus mode. Naomi is into kite boarding, so we AF-C is the focus mode for moving subjects, although this time the target was me, not a kite boarder.
I look forward to seeing Naomi's actual kite boarder shots. I came across a few people doing this before and it seems like a great subject for producing exciting action shots.
