Reading the Light Meter


Fairy Lake Mosaic

Saturday morning early a group of members from the Newmarket Camera Club including me joined  professional photographer Ross Chevalier in Fairy Lake a lovely little park in the middle of Newmarket.  We were there to learn to properly read the light meter in our camera to get the best possible shot.  We learned about exposure compensation and how to read a gray card and how to see light and use it to our advantage when taking photos. It was a great morning and we came away feeling more confident when out and about taking great pictures.

I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.   I hope you have a great week.  



Sounds like a really fun day, and sunny also.

Oh wow... I could certainly benefit from a class like this as well. Seems I'm always in such a hurry to get the shot and move on though... silly me... Glad you enjoyed the class!

There is so much I need to learn about photography. The local camera club meets on a day when I'm unavailable unfortunately, so I haven't been able to go. Darn.

It looks like you had a great day.

A pretty place to sit and relax.
Thanks for stopping by and nice comment.
That must have been so fun and educational. It is always so nice to learn new things with group of same kind if interest. So wonderful pictures and with perfect exposure.
I've been thinking about upgrading from my point-and-shoot. Then would come the challenge of learning how to use it. A lovely collage and l liked your poppy post too.
You got some great shot. It was a great morning and I learned to much. Take care:) Jen

Abstract Flowers

I found this photo in my Lightroom files yesterday and I decided to join Bonnie for her monthly Pixel Dust Photo Art PhotoArtFriday. Her theme this month was funny enough abstract art.  So I added one of her textures called Si  Belle to my abstract flowers and that is it.

First Birthday

Yesterday my husband and I attended our granddaughters first birthday party.  The house was alive with little ones having a fun time of running through the house.  Kenzi wanted to join it but they kept knocking her down as they sped past her.  She is a trouper though.  No tears as she got back up and tried to go with the flow again. The hitch came when she was to participate in the smash the cake ritual that all of my daughter-in-laws family do at the first birthday.  Her maternal grandmother had made the smash cake and Kenzi was supposed to get down into it with both hands and get covered in cake.   Kenzi was having no part in it.  She cried as her hand was pushed into the cake.   Oh well maybe next year.  It was lovely to see all the little babies born at the same time as Kenzi and how sweet they all were.  Kenzi’s cake was an Elmo cake.  He is her favourite character.  I am joining Mary for Mosaic Monday.  I can feel spring in the air even though we have quite a bit of snow left bu…
