Hey, yinz guys!
Two weeks ago, I started taking basic photography class at Pittsburgh Filmmakers. My goal for the class is to take better pictures of people. That sounds pretty obvious, but it’s an obstacle for me. When I took this picture of Chancellor Mark Nordenberg at Pitt Day in Harrisburg, I fiddled with so many settings trying to get the sharpest image in the dimly lit capitol building. This ran on the front page of the The Pitt News, and it was my first picture to get on the front page. The only thing that tainted this experience was that I had to take so many shots just to get that one worthy of A1.
Here are some of the shots I took as part of my first homework assignment, which taught the basics of ISO, aperture and shutter speed. Yes, I know these pictures don’t feature people. I have to overcome my bashfulness to do that. Anyway, check ’em aht!
