Collect the Moments: Lighting

3 06 2012

This week I started the first e-course from Capturing Childhood called Collect the Moments. I thought that this would be a great place to record how I am getting on and capturing my favourite images each week.

The first week was all about lighting and it has been so interesting and informative. Already there is great chatter and feedback on the shared Facebook and Flickr pages and I can’t wait to see what we will be learning next week.

I have definitely realised that I need to carve out some time to really read the manual for Mr C’s DSLR and most of the trouble I have been having with my shots this week is getting home and looking at them on the computer and realising that the focus isn’t right. There have been loads of great tips and I am definitely going to try working with the flash more indoors, I just need to practice some tips for manipulating and softening the light when I do.

But I am already thinking differently and getting results that I am so pleased with. Here are a few of the shots that I have taken this week that I am really pleased with.
