My Sunday Photo - Feb 7th 2016


I mentioned a few weeks ago that I wanted to improve my camera skills and the lovely Lisa at Lisa's Life recommended an online camera  course with Emma Davies.  I signed up and I'm loving it.  We get an email a week with a topic to concentrate on and already I understand some of those many buttons and knobs on my camera.

I know how to change the aperture to change the depth of field so whilst your rather boring pumpkin is always in focus the background may not be ...



And I know how to alter the shutter speed to photograph fast moving objects like the water in this stream:



It's probably not too late for you to sign up if you want to learn how to use better your camera.  Click on A Year with my Camera if you are interested.

    1. Thank you - the pumpkin was not the most inspiring of photos but it clearly shows what you can do when you know how to twiddle the buttons on the camera!

  2. Good work on the shutter speed on the water. I've heard good things about this course.

    Thank you for linking up

    1. At a faster shutter speed the water was even more detailed but the photo was very dark, so I think I would have needed to change the ISO as well. Yes, the course is really good and I have already learnt lots.

  3. Well done! These all look really great. I am enjoying following the advanced section as I did a lot of this on another course last year - it really is very good. #MySundayPhoto

  5. Oh that's fabulous Rosie. Well done :)

    I inherited my husband's previous camera but have never used it - just take my phone out with me all the time and snap on that. Looks like I should be thinking about it differently ...

    1. I am still that for a lot of photos but it is great fun learning how much more I can do with a bit of button twiddling!

  9. Great stuff with shutter speed and depth of field, I really must learn more about those.

  10. That sounds such an invaluable course, especially if they break it down into bite sized pieces of info (which I imagine it does)...going to sign up for it now. Thanks for sharing,
