Cloudy Weather and Rain Part Three

Rain. The reason I’m posting this late is because the weather has literally refused to rain. Or at least when it has it always makes my asthma so bad I’m stuck in all day unable to take photos. But this morning I woke up and hurray it was raining. I grabbed my Canon camera and […]

Exercise Cloudy Weather and Rain

I am so behind on this course which I’m quite upset with, but I can’t help it when my health relapses back landing me unable to leave the house for weeks. But thank goodness, I’m climbing back up again out of the pit and can return to my course. Exercise. To take photos of the […]

Cloudy Weather and Rain Part Two

Everyone was crowded around shivering with the overcast freezing day and I decided to […]

Exercise. Higher and Lower Sensitivity

I had to take several photos on high and lower sensitivity by using different ISO on an overcast day when light level, subject movement or depth of field was only just possible . It just so happened that as I set off to do exactly that the sun came out. And it stayed for several weeks. Which […]
