A (Sort-of) Photography Friday: Photo Walk

Lately, more and more people have been asking me for photography lessons.

Knowing how to do something, and teaching it are two completely different things.

I think I'm becoming a better teacher though.

(Although, with photography there's always a lot more to learn no matter what level you're at.  Trust me, I realize I still have a lifetime of learning ahead of me.)

In any case, I thought you might like to see a few of the photos I took recently while on a combined photo walk/lesson.  In small print under each photo, I've added what aspect of photography I was trying to demonstrate at the time.  (For you non-photographers, just ignore the small print and enjoy the photos.)  

My student was a just-beginning photographer. 


(Go high or go low vs. taking all your photos at eye level.)

I intentionally let there be a little lens flare in the above photo.  I'm weird like that.

I love the sun-weathered sign.


(Difficult lighting – what do you do when metering isn't clear-cut?)

Morning light shining under the pier.  No, I didn't alter the colors in this photo … the ocean really did look golden-ish with the morning sun on it.

The exact same photo in black and white …


(How you post-process a photo can make a huge difference in the emotions a photo evokes.)

Do you, personally, prefer the above photo in color or black and white?


(Leading lines!)

Railroad tracks on the ocean's edge.

And what good are railroad tracks …

Without a train?

    I prefer the rich, unexpected colors in the pier photo. While I was in Florida, I saw some art photography done with an infrared filter, and now I want one!

    I am a black and white fan. That pic was my favorite of all of them today.

    I like it in color…funny how we all have our own opinions!
    How are you getting the train when clearly it is moving? I would get just a blur, I’m sure!! So interesting!!
