DSLR at Charlecote Park, Warwick

I know that we’ve been waiting for the weather to get better, but Sunday 27th May was an absolute scorcher! It didn’t stop our lovely group from being eager to get outside and practice their new-found knowledge of learning how to blur the background for a professional-looking shallow depth of field image. Although, the crowds of visitors meant that they had to really think about composition much more thoughtfully. We always say that you either have people in the image on purpose (maybe to show scale), or not at all. If you simply didn’t notice them, then it’s a mistake, and will serve as a distraction. And don’t forget, once you have lost your viewer to a distraction, you can’t get them back!

We also practised using shutter priority (S or TV). All of the group were thrilled to know how to get that gorgeous effect of ‘milky water’. It’s all in the shutter speed!picture from photography course at Charlecote
