Last assignment.

My photography course is slowly coming to and end. Sunday morning, the whole class, met at six o'clock at the magnificent Modderfontein Nature Reserve. It's unfortunately closed to the public, but you can go on guided walks or attend talks. So, it was truly a privilege to go there...

And it was beautiful...these little gems that exist all over Joburg are magical.

The objective of the outing was to put into practice what we had learnt over the past five weeks. Here are my shots, that I chose to submit.
Please ignore the quality of some...we are working in manual mode, and I am still trying to wrap my head around it...and they haven't been edited at all...we had to submit them as we took them.
Our very last class is on Wednesday night, and I am already considering doing the Photoshop one...but we will see...maybe I should just figure out this one first...

I have had so much fun doing this course...well worth every single cent...

Working in the manual mode is divine. I love it. I love how you can alter photos just by the different settings on your camera. I still love experimenting and am seriously considering going on another 'follow-up' or something course.

The light here is divine. Best light of day , early morning and early evening. So soft and forgiving.

Well done, you got some great shots. xx

I wish I could post an informed, educated comment. Fact is, I use a point, shoot and pray. So your photos all look epic to me. :-)

I am particularly drawn to the peely paint one.
