Photo Lesson - Sundays in My City

I booked a photography lesson this past Friday with Tim Collins in order to actually learn how to use the new DSLR camera I got last year. I used to have a fully-manual 35mm camera years ago but then the digital revolution came along and I forgot many of the skills I once knew. The lesson took place in Amsterdam and here are a few of the shots that came as a result.

Linking up with Unknown Mami for the fabulous SIMC weekly get-together.

  1. I'm having a hard time choosing a favorite. Perhaps the colorful boat shot. But they are all interesting.

  2. Love the third one down through the wheels, great use of depth and different perspective


  3. These are fabulous Dorothy!!!! I love the perspective of looking through things bike. I love the one of the boats. I love the guy on his bike. Great job!!! I can't wait to see what you do next time you post.

  4. Great shots. I especially like the reflections in the water.
    I hope you're having a great week. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Great shots! I took some photography lessons when I was in high school on a manual camera, but since then I've had mostly automatics. Now I have a cannon G12 which has a lot of manual settings, but I'm kind of scared of using them. Sometimes I try to just go halfies and just use aperture priority, but man, I need help on the photo taking department.

  6. That last photo is fun. So much movement.
