Saturday night, I joined Eric and the photography club in shooting the Dallas skyline at night. I wasn’t overly excited about it, since we’d previously done a Dallas After Dark shoot. But, as soon as we hit the first location for the night, I was thrilled. Look at the fabulous reflections I got on the water from the lights.
Eric helped me out with my camera settings (I’m now determined to learn how to figure this out on my own!) and he let me use one of his tripods, which I actually used. Shocker.
We moved on to the second location, a little closer than the first. The first thing I found out was that with the slower shutter speed, look what happened to the traffic going by – you just get this cool blur of light.
See? And along with neon, I have a fascination with graffiti.
From there we moved on to our final location.
Like I said, I was thrilled that I went with Eric. The event was so well-planned and I think I got some great shots. I’m completely determined to learn more about camera settings and learning how to work the technical aspects. I think I’ve got a good feel for what I like to photograph and the way I like to compose my shots, I just need to learn how to make my vision happen.
