Light Trails.



It always fascinates me how he would just stand beside me, pluck information from his head and says: "Put your F/stop to... and your shutter speed to..." And the moment I click my camera, it always captures the effect I want to see.

Last weekend, he taught me how to take pictures with sun glare. Last Wednesday, he taught me how to take photos of cascading water. Tonight, he taught me how to take photos of light trails.

The photo above was taken with my 50mm at Serendra, not the best place to take light trails, but I was really happy that I finally got it (without a tripod!). I would like to try this on a busy street and perhaps, with my wide angle lens.

I love to learn, research, and practice photography everyday. I do love to learn new things and see old lessons with new eyes.

Thank you, CBB. :)

Beautiful! How long did you keep your shutter open for this, Ai?

Don't you just love it that CBB coaches you? I guess Charles is my CBB. He has all the theory and he also tells me what to do. Siya man kugihan mubasa photography books and magazines. Ako tapulan kaayo! :-)

Thanks, Liz! Five seconds, without a tripod. :D I should bring my tripod when I practice next time. :)

I love it, Liz! And it helps that he used to photograph a lot when he was younger and that he is very creative, too. Many things I do in photoshop, he could do manually on film, which always, always amazes me.

You are lucky you have Charles! Reading is one thing and another when there's someone who actually explains and coaches. I personally learn more this way. :)

Thanks, Jops!

Yes, I'm very lucky to have a mentor. And oh, he's my bestfriend, too. :)

WOW! You have such steady hands! 5 full seconds and no tripod? That's really impressive! I don't think many people can hold a camera steady for 5 seconds and not move. Or maybe ako lang, hehehe :-)

I mean, maybe ako lang ang dili steady 'coz I can't hold a camera for even 2 seconds and not move! :-)
