Early Morning at Flamingo Gardens
I can't even remember the last time that I went on a photoshoot. But thanks to my former teacher and now friend, Jeremiah, I accompanied his current class to Flamingo Gardens this morning.
Strike a Pose
It was a stunningly beautiful spring morning. Although the temperature was in the 80s by 10am, there was a breeze and the humidity was fairly low so it was very comfortable walking around.
It was great to be challenged. My camera didn't want to work at first and I struggled with the settings because in manual mode, something was wrong and I couldn't get the light meter to work properly. However, after a brief struggle and toggling between manual and program modes, I finally got the camera to comply. I do think that I am on borrowed time with this camera. it is now about 14 years old and has done a great job for me until now.
I haven't touched my camera in so long, I have been using my iPhone for all of my photos and videos. Nothing wrong with that, but there are some things that are difficult to control, like camera speed and depth of field. Although I know that Andy would argue with me about that!
These images I made are the best of the bunch with only a bit of minor Photoshop.
