Capturing True Emotions - photography class by Val Westover & Stephanie Adrianna

I attended Capturing True Emotions - photography class by Val Westover & Stephanie Adrianna yesterday and had such fun. I finally took out my new Nikon d7000 and had learnt lots of controls. I am presently also taking online class at karenrussell and lol have taken beginning class 1st part from Candice Stringham at Jessica Sprague too.
This was a surprise from hubby who said I should maybe go as there is nothing like being live - when the person is in front of you to ask doubts and get it cleared . How true that proved. I knew the theory but lol to turn it to practice. Nothing beats that as I learnt a lot of setting on my camera.
Also when we are in a group lots of fun things are possible. I enjoyed the "safari" part of the class a lot!
we were asked to play with each settings they asked us to do and record and then compare.
It did not matter if some shots turned dark -was blurry etc etc as the whole point was to learn how each settings affected the picture
So here are some of my shots. I will later add the camera settings. Do click on the picture to see it enlarged.

This was at the class before the play  - with 50 mm 1.4 nikon lens.





The rest was at Waterwall at Houston and taken with 18-105mm kit lens.

The Bench at the park. we were asked to take a shot with particular setting. I decided to bend and take pictures but just look how just a little bit of change in angle - changes the view a bit. So learnt an additional thing  that take more than one picture at different angles.






Same settings as previous but on water bottle







This following one was metering experiment




Now came the shutter speed & panning with slow shutter speed





Now comes higher shutter speed





Then I had an unexpected model











Then came what I call Facebook fun. Fun portrait for facebook :) . Val standing on bench and taking their picture while everyone was pointing their camera at them. It was so fun.
Well instead of just pointing I took a picture too here




While here I was the subject
