Hooligan Zoo

Two Zookeepers… many Hooligans… It's always feeding time at this zoo!

Photography Friday – Hand edition!

on June 17, 2011

Whew! Friday AGAIN???

So, to recap, my Mum and I have challenged each other to take pictures following a basic set of rules…

The rules are,

1. Cameras have to be on the same “master” pre-agreed upon setting, no Auto. Within that setting it’s okay to manipulate some of the other settings. Like shutter speed, iso, etc.

2. No pictures of hooligans, unless it directly applies to the subject chosen that week.

3. One week one of us chooses the subject, one of us chooses the setting (P, S, A, M)

4. No editing of the pictures in any kind of photo editing software.

5. 3 pictures that must conform to the above rules have to be posted on our respective blogs by midnight on Friday.

This week, I chose the A or aperture setting, and Mum chose the subject of “hands”. All pictures were taken with a Nikon D3000, and the standard 18-55mm kit lens.

Aperture is something that I’ve had a hard time getting my head around. Aperture combined with focal length is a bit difficult to understand… taking loads of pictures was definitely helpful.

Without further ado, here are my top three pics! (As always, click through to a few more on Flickr)

Hands Challenge

Hands Challenge

This was a really fun challenge! I enjoyed it, and enjoyed learning a bit more about aperture… (The P setting on my camera is still my favourite tho.)

Join us next week for the subject (chosen by the lovely AmyJ) of “Out”. I think she thinks we’ve been going to easy on each other. Check out Mum’s blog, Momsideup, for what the setting is supposed to be.
