Anyway, let's get to it! We're working on a couple different lessons today. First up ... "subject".
|"Perfect, Mags. You're my subject, OK?"|
Well, seriously. Couldn't have picked a better one. But now ...
|"OK, now FOCUS!"|
"I AM focusing, Mom!"
That one was over-exposed, so she adjusted the exposure for the next one:
|"I'm still focusing, Mom!"|
Oh. Right. She meant setting the focus on her iPhone. Who knew?
I stopped focusing and gave her a super-model pose:
|This is my "Ennui" look|
Pretty good, don't you think?
We moved on to the next lesson - "HDR", high dynamic range. Sounds exciting! It blends three shots together and is a good setting for adding detail in both the low-light and high-light areas. The only catch is that the subject (again -- me!) has to be stationary. Now THAT'S a homework challenge! No worries, I've got this:
So Mom got "subject" and "HDR" both in that shot -- plus set the exposure and focus manually. Awesome combo. But ... what's she doing on her knees?
|"Mom? What are you doing down there? You didn't trip again, did you?"|
I'd say we did mighty well. And a certain "subject" deserves a couple of treats -- right?!?! It's a good thing I'm a Working Breed - this is getting brutal!
