with my 3hr "DSLR for morons" workshop under my belt, i'm now a profesh photographer. this means that i tote my DSLR around that's NO LONGER ON THE AUTO SETTING and pretend like i know what i'm doing. it also means that i can tell my husband to not touch the camera settings because they're perfect and i'm legit now so i know what i'm talking about.
when i heard that kelli was doing this linkup, i wanted to have this workshop done before i joined so i'll be hopping on the bandwagon this week and going forward because duh, profesh photog, remember?
this week's topic is 'food'. as i was schlepping around the kitchen trying to figure out what to shoot, i remembered what the instructor said: try to shoot contrasting colors that make the photograph pop and so i came up with with this:
i wasn't even going to bake; i just added the measuring cups for depth and because i'm a fucking genius. i even added my own watermark because i'm too legit to quit.
now, here's where i impress you:
i shot this in P-Mode, with ISO set to auto and configured my AF point selection to focus near the center of the chocolate chip bowl. yes, i'm allowed to use these words because legit, remember? when the sunlight shone down on my subject - which i interpreted as the heavens parting and shining its light on the sheer brilliance of this idea - the first photograph had lots of shadows and ruined the shot. so what did i do? I USED THE UGLY MAKER (aka: the stock flash) to offset the shadows which resulted in this photograph. BOOM BOOM POW, bitches.
then i did this:
then i ate the whole thing because i deserved it. and also because shark week is what's up which means i have to eat all the things. so i did. and it was delicious. not even sorry either.
do you have a DSLR? have you ever done a workshop before?
