Through this class I definitely received a basic knowledge of some photography lingo that I had previously researched and failed miserably at understanding. Some of these terms include ISO, aperture, depth of field and white balance. In addition, I have started learning to shoot in Shutter Priority (TV) and Aperture Priority (AV) mode. The pictures I am posting below were shot in AV mode. Obviously these modes will take time and a variety of situations to master, but I feel as though I am well on my way! Now, my goal is to be able to shoot in Manual mode in any situations, and I am definitely headed in the right direction! It seems as though the most important thing I can do from this point is to practice...practice...and then practice some more! Which is definitely what I plan on doing!
Here are some shots I took after my class in which I set the ISO and white balance myself.
Also I bought Digital UV Filters for both of my lenses!
