Nikon D7000 1-on-1 DSLR Photography Lesson in St. Petersburg Florida exposure & composition

Shooting in an urban environment with a Nikon D7000 during a 1-on-1 photography lesson in St. Petersburg FloridaLong-time dog park friend and current 1-on-1 DSLR Photography Lesson student, Mari, has had two weeks to practice since our last lesson, and she certainly has been doing her homework as she is now showing a good grasp of how to shoot in manual mode on her Nikon D7000.  After she read my photography tip on default daylight settings something seemed to click and now she can consistently adjust her exposure settings (aperture, shutter speed, ISO) to produce the exact kind of results she wants, be it a neutral, over or under exposed image.  This allowed us to start to really focus more on composition and "seeing" shots as we walked around downtown St. Petersburg.

Mari will soon be getting a new telephoto lens so our next lesson will no doubt feature birds, hopefully in flight!
