Working on class work. Unit 1: DoF

In order to work on my skills, I have been taking Photography classes on and off. Most recently with the New York Institute of Photography. I was struggling a bit with the "Great Depth of Field (DoF)" using F/22.  The first picture has been taken in Oregon in one of the canyons near Salem, OR.  Taken at drawn...  Pentax K-1 Mark II, F/22, Exposure 20sec, ISO 200, 70mm, Center Weighted.

The second picture is a Shallow Depth of Field (DoF) . Pentax K-7, F/4.5, 1/250sec, ISO 100, 138mm, Pattern

Starting a new photography class.

Because I am not working as a full time photographer, I need to set myself goals. This will force you to get working and be creative. At the same time you will keep on learning more. This is the second “New York Institute of Photography” class and I like them.

Framing Photographs

We have been looking for a good place to frame our photographs. I am planning on displaying them in a Art Gallery in Alexandria, VA.

I can highly recommend it.
