Shadows and Kids

Something old

I mentioned to my mother a while back that I wanted to start collecting old cameras and display them in my office.  Well, she has started the collection for me.  So far she has found 3 cameras and an old tripod in different thrift stores.  The first one is a Polaroid Land Camera Model 800 built from 1957 – 1962.  Click here to see a quick video showing how to operate this camera.

This is a very heavy camera.

Unit 1 – Aperture

As some of you know I started a photography course with NYIP in December.  I have completed Unit 1 with a B on the final test.  I now have to complete the 2 assignments.  The first one is aperture.  I must depict 2 images, one with a shallow depth of field and one with a great depth of field.  The 2 images below are for shallow depth of field but I am debating on which image to submit.

These images are straight out of the camera.

So I ask you for your assistance, which you think I should submit?  Or do you think I should try again?

When I edit the image it will be cropped and straightened only.

A Photographer in the Making

This little angel here had a bad day at school today.  He did not get his way so he made sure no one else did either.  After dealing with his mother and a few moments in time out.  He asked if he can take some pictures.  I started to say no because of the behavior today but decided to see what he can do.

The first image is one I took while showing him how to keep one eye open so he can look in the viewfinder.   The rest are all his.

Do we have a budding photographer here?

Keeping one eye open

 

He gave me instructions on how to pose.  He told me to do some of the same things that I say to him.

A day in the snow

Yesterday it snowed most of the day here in New Jersey. The kids wanted to go out and play in the snow so of course I let them and it was a perfect opportunity to take some pictures and practice aperture settings.  Although photos did not turn out in the quality that I wanted they were “ok”.  I still need more work.
