Homework

Actually this week I didn't really have homework for my photography class - but as I am struggling with the concept of apertures and shutter speeds - I decided to try a few shots without the "automatic" setting.  

One of the assignments coming up - is to take 10 pictures of the same thing - with different shutter speeds and different apertures........... I figured I would get a head start.  So the other evening right around sun set I grabbed my camera and headed outside.  

My dear teacher has a love of water - ponds - puddles.  And hey I am not beyond earning a few extra marks by sucking up (cheeky grin).  I took - I don't know - about 20 shots of two leaves floating in a puddle of water on the top of container on the front deck.   It got old real fast..................

I will spare you the 20 shots   - but here is one ......................



Something made me look up   -  the sun had almost set - and there in the night sky was a rainbow.  I knew I would get basically one shot at it.... so I went for it.............



I don't feel quite so at odds with apertures and shutter speeds.......... and figure things can only improve from here.................
