Last night, a few members of the TCRPMG went to Washington Park to apply what they had learned in the Camera Basics 101 course led by John Iannelli. I think it was a huge success. While we were there, I couldn’t help but grab this shot of the statue in the fountain and the amazing sky he was facing.
From where I was standing, it looked like he was yelling to the heavens, perhaps asking for rain. The texture of the sky made it even more appealing. I was really happy that I had been there at that exact time.
We found a nice flower and took pictures of it, with the goal of having a sharply focused main subject with a blurred background (bokeh effect). It was a great exercise and I think the members really enjoyed learning how this effect was accomplished.
