#LightsCameraCurrys in Brighton

IMG_7452

Two weeks ago (though it seems like a lot longer!) I spent a gloriously sunny day in a basement, learning all about how to use my DSLR off ‘auto’ mode. We spent the morning being told the tips and tricks of the trade by local pro photographer Dade Freeman, who really does know his stuff! IMG_7456

I now have more than a vague knowledge of iso/aperture/shutter speed and some more settings, although I did manage to mess up the settings on manual and take about 12 photos which were actually pure white before I fixed it! I took a few pages of notes though so have skimmed through them a few times since! After lunch we were given a list of shots to capture, and sent off into the glorious sunshine to see what we could come up with! This is me capturing Dade capturing us!

this was meant to be capturing fast action (thanks Carrie for being my model!) but is more like leading lines…

Capturing motion: I reckon almost all of us used a seagull for this!

framing: the little train next to the carousel, purely because it said Brighton Belle!

    This looks like such a great day. I’ve recently got a new camera and I think I’d really benefit from something like this.

    Loving the new look website design! Tried to post comment in garland DIY post but wouldn’t let me click on ‘leave a reply’? Thought I should let u know! I’m using an iPad so maybe it’s due to that! Xx

    How great to learn how to use your camera better! lovely Brighton, I must go there again! I’ve been only twice but only fleetingly- once for the Lindyhop festival last year and once to the Pavillion- it looks gorgeous- you are so lucky!x
