Photography Class

May 01, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The past couple of months I have been taking a photography class at Crossroads Christian Church in Shawnee, KS.  It was taught my a very gifted photographer, who has the spirit of teaching.  His name is Ron Morse.  I am not able to find a website of his, but here's an article with his photography.

The class gave me challenges that I would not have tried otherwise.  It has made me grow as a photographer, even though some of the class was basic settings.

Here's a shot that I did with a shallow depth of field.  This was my Canon 6d with 50mm f/1.8 lens.  Lens was manually focused to the closest it could be.  This was shot at 100 ISO, F/1.8, 1/6 sec.  I was using a Manfrotto Pixi tripod, as at the time I didn't have a full sized tripod.    I had a white seamless paper, with a mini-LED rope light (which causes the blue line).  I was using 1 flash with a grid.  Look at the behind the scene photo for more.

Here's another I did shooting very fast shutter speeds with a flash.  This was using a drop of water from a medicine dropper.  The flash had a gel firing directly down.  I had the flash on high speed sync.  I shot this at ISO 100, F/4.0, at 1/4000 sec.  This is a simple setup, look at YouTube for videos, but it's a lot of trial and error.

Both of these were a lot of fun.  Certainly stretched me a bit, and made me want to try new things.  One thing I found that I do love doing, and have loved for a while, is teaching people.  I love sharing my knowledge.  Teaching is just one of the ways you get better.
