#44 Digital Photography

On May 11, I culminated my experience of learning how to take more advanced digital photographs using my new Nikon D5600. I presented to guest professors a range of 8 x 10 photographs that were dry matted. The photographic concepts included motion photographs (stop action and intentional blurring by panning), photographs of still life, portraits, landscapes, and photographs showing the quality of light.

I learned techniques for adjusting aperture, shutter speed, and ISO sensitivity, without relying on a flash or the simplified ‘program mode’, to get the proper exposure and effect. Also, I learned lighting and composition to get the most interest and how to edit photographs using Photoshop.

Perhaps the most rewarding types of photographs I like to take are portraits of willing participants and motion photographs. Below are a few samples of my favorite motion photographs.
