The Pond

One of the cool things about the subdivision my mom lives in is there are two huge ponds right by her house. My mom has a john boat that I took out the other day and took some pictures. Right now there are hundreds of ducks in the pond and I really wanted to get some close ups, but the ducks feel like cooperating. To add to his, I have this internal struggle with putting my camera on auto mode, where I know I will get great pictures, and putting it on manual mode like I am supposed to for class, in order to improve my photography skills! So, after a big battle with myself, I decided against putting it on auto, instead, I got some pictures that are just ok, not great. But, I will not get better unless I practice!!

  1. Keep up the good work! You are doing what you’re supposed to and once you learn how to use those settings, you won’t stop. Aperture is difficult to understand. I took a photography class at Trident Tech one semester, and I never grasped the concept,lol. I love the last one, especially!

  2. These pictures are BEAUTIFUL!! Makes me want to get my dSLR fixed. I wish I still had it to take nice pictures of my kids.
    When I was at NAU, I wanted to major in photography. I loved the taking pictures part, but being in the dark room SUCKED! I still don’t quite understand aperture and things like that. I’m excited that you’re getting to learn all of this cool stuff!
    I hope we can make it to see you guys some time soon!
    Love ya’ll!

  3. Heather, your pictures are beautiful. I am in no way an expert, but they look good to me. Some of those landscapes on the pond would make terrific jigsaw puzzles!!
