Today I went on a photo shoot at Kelley Park in San Jose. I wanted to practice changing settings in manual mode, using my telephoto and wide angle lenses, and composition before I leave for South Africa next week. Pretend that the squirrel is a leopard!
Shot through the car window at 65 mph. Just took a chance at Shutter speed 60, F22 Auto ISO, 300mm. Pretty happy with how it turned out!
Today I went on a photo shoot to Almaden Lake Park. I was disappointed that the birds on the lake were blurry. The camera was on a tripod, but I forgot to turn off image stablization. Shot at 300mm, aperture 9. I probably should have used a larger aperture to increase depth of field, as the birds were quite far away.
Captured this little guy sampling a nectarine at the farmer’s market this morning. My goal was to work on composition and tell a story with my shots, and I was quite please with this one.

This post is in response to today’s assignment from Blogging University, Blogging 101 course. It was to try another blogging event. I chose to join the Weekly Photo Challenge and take a photo for this week’s challenge: “Half and Half”.
