exposures and f-stops and bears..Oh My!

shutter speed + iso + aperture (f-stops) = exposure.

okay. got it. check.

fine tuning these 3 components together for a perfectly desired exposed photo…

still working on that. kinda get it. check.

spending alot of time getting to know mr. nikon d80.

yes – Still.

this is a process.

a process that takes many hours of practice. and reading. and more practice.

today my models were mr. vanilla bear and miss maggie.

bear-fstop-5

maggie-fstop-7

yeah – i need to get human models soon.

although mr. bear and miss maggie were perfect for today’s pratice time .

a human would have gotten tired of me changing settings and taking more bad shots than good.

i do love learning photography. it’s complex but so rewarding when i see the results of my ambition to learn!

here’s to that old saying that practice makes perfect.

i continue to happily practice.
