This week’s photo challenge by Cheri Lucas Rowlands asks that we share photos of the golden hour just after sunrise and just before sunset. I took the first three pictures during the golden hour.
However, the gallery photos are examples of playing with my manual camera settings utilizing the most recent advice offered by Wenjie Zhang for Photography 101 this week along with advice offered by Ming Thein in his two prior posts. These are not exactly during the golden hour, but with the cloudy afternoon the lighting was similar.
Mahalo to Wenjie and Ming for helping me to explore the manual settings on my camera. I even tried the live-view setting to help me with lighting. This made it easier to delete some of my bad photos before I loaded them on my computer.
I still have a long way to go before I perfect my settings, but at least I am no longer afraid to try experimenting with lighting.
