Freeman Patterson/André Gallant Photography Course – Day 2


Day #2 on the Freeman Patterson and André Gallant course, and I am still anxious, but not as much. Today’s focus was on slow speed panning, visual perspective, texture, composite montages and in-camera multiple exposure. Today, 6 of us had an opportunity to practice some of the things we have learned by spending the morning in and around St Martin’s harbour. The slow shutter speed panning was interesting and different. In the past when I have taken panning photos, it has been of a moving object and the shutter speed was set high enough to stop the action of the moving object, but not the background. Today I practised with a shutter speed of 1/8 second, and here are the results.

The rest of the photos were taken at the harbour or at St Martin’s Country Inn …

By the end of the day I was totally zonked from having my brain filled with new knowledge and then being creative for hours at a time. But it is worth it.
