New List of Classes https://www.danenwilliamsphoto.com/blog/2012/7/new-list-of-classes I just can't get enough! Carol you are right, these classes are invigorating. I've been shooting for myself again for the first time in a while. Just had to get this thing!

Here is the list of the new classes. I think there is something in it for everyone. I'm especially interested in the class with kids. I think it's going to be wonderful chaos!

Downtown Photo Class https://www.danenwilliamsphoto.com/blog/2012/7/downtown-photo-class A big thank you to everyone who came out yesterday!  I had  lot of fun! A special thanks to my cousin Sarah for making the drive from Grand Rapids to come out and play. 

I wanted to post for everyone some of the shots I took while we were out and especially the rain/shutter speed demonstration we were so lucky to get. I say that only half sarcastically, we did get chased indoors by the rain but it went away and gave us this nice demonstration and all those great droplets on the trees after it stopped.

First here is the frozen raindrops exposure 1/1600 at F3.5 ISO 3200

Next here is the slow shutter speed and smooth rain exposure 1/10 at F14 ISO 200


Lastly here is the average exposure that is more like what your camera would choose on automatic.  1/125 at f4 ISO 200

You can see that they are all well exposed for the scene, they are all in fact letting in the same amount of light.  What we are able to do with aperture, shutter speed, and ISO it to make creative decisions that the camera just cannot and will not make for us. That is really the heart of learning photography, of learning the photographic process.  There is a tool box available us, a large deep history of resources, to make great photographs.  What we are starting with is the simple powerful tools we use everyday with every picture.  


Lets continue our discussion and critiques, please post your top two or three class pictures and a sentence or two about what you were thinking when you made each photograph on our Facebook page: Hicks Studio Flint


Here are a few others that I got,

Pictures From The Farmers Market https://www.danenwilliamsphoto.com/blog/2012/7/pictures-from-the-farmers-market OK Class! Here are some of  the shots I got while we were at the Farmers Market on Saturday. If you can I'd like to see how yours turned out.  Looking at the back of the camera is only goo for so much and I would like to see how you all do with your Post-processing.  I ran mine through Lightroom 3 without too much tweaking, the most work being on the garlic trying to reign in the highlights a little.

Northern lights as Promised https://www.danenwilliamsphoto.com/blog/2012/6/northern-lights-as-promised Here is that Time lapse of the northern lights. Even though it's been done and amazingly well here it's still the type of thing I'd want to plan a vacation around. Going out to take a thousand pictures in the snow. It's worth your time I promise!

Time Lapse Goodness https://www.danenwilliamsphoto.com/blog/2012/6/time-lapse-goodness I always love these dedicated projects. One Picture really isn't much to do in a day but everyday consistantly is tough. Time lapse, slow-motion, there is something about the extra perception that I love. I'll find you an amazing time lapse of the northern lights soon.
