1st Day of Class For My Photography Trip!

This sumer I am traveling with my school and National Geographic Student Exhibitions to Italy and Greece! This trip is really cool because we get to travel for two weeks with two national geographic photographers and we get to learn how to improve our photography skills. All this while traveling "under the tuscan sun".

We are spending one week in Italy and one in Greece, experiencing and photographing the culture and history of these two countries. Before we leave on this trip, however, we must have some classroom hours because being a photographer is so much more than "pointing and shooting".

Today was our first day of class and we learned some VERY important things about light and how to adjust the camera so more or less light can be let into the shot. There are three ways to do that: the ISO, F-stop, and the shutter speed. After learning about and becoming more familiar with the professional qualities of our cameras, we crossed the street and went to EL GALLO for lunch. It was pretty good and we are certainly going to miss Mexican food on our trip!

Well that's all for now!
