I drove to Leonis Adobe out in Calabasas today for several reasons.
For one, I have my first photo Clickin walk
out in Laguna.
I'm going to be with other woman photographers & I want to look like I know what I'm doing! Another reason is I'm committed to really understanding shooting technical & with purpose. Frankie can a test that I am so NOT technical. My mind just doesn't work that way. The words may as well be in Chinese if I have to read a manual!
But, once I put my mind to something, well, there's no telling what great things I can do!
Noon time shooting is the
scariest, most apprehensive, most challenging time of day for me. We don't have a lot of cloudy days so lighting is harsh-to say the least. Now that puts limits to when I can shoot-who wants to be limited?
I found a sun dial in the garden...pretty close to noon!
I took A LOT of photos and am excited to share them...but slowly!
I'm posting a few of my favorites today.
What can I say? I'm a bokeh floozy!
This is a Percheron, native to France. Known for their poise and grace, were the horses knights in armor used for their mounts.
It was really nice museum. It seemed the perfect day to visit, even though it was 93*. I accomplished what I set out to do- NOT USE ANY DUMMY MODES.
Is there room for improvement? ALWAYS. Will I have fun trying? ABSOLUTELY
Think I'm ready for Laguna!
Happy (find your bliss) snapping!
