Second session at the photo course

I just attended the second lesson at the photo course. Topics covered:
  • Basic explanation of how a CCD sensor is used to create a digital image.
  • Histogram. What it is and why use it.
Pictures from all students for the "own project" of all students were also discussed. There were some nice series about light and shadow and "a person and his/her dog". My pictures do not immediately classify as a "series". They are too direct, leave nothing for imagination (this is my own conclusion). I need something so "the sum means more than the individual parts".

We also looked at some pictures by Ansel Adams. His photos are still one of the best examples of excellent composition, exposure and contrast. Watch the Youtube video below to learn more about how Ansel lived and what he did in the dark room.
