I am in a photography group in Geneva. Just like in French class, I’m easily the worst one. Gabe graciously lets me take his fancy camera out so I can look like I know what I am doing. But I don’t. I keep it on the automatic setting. I have no clue what to do otherwise*.
Our leader does a really good job at giving direction and inspiration. Each month we have a theme. This time, we had an outing to the Knie Circus, which is in town. We were during the day so only had access to the zoo part of the circus. At first, I was a little bored. But, with time, I discovered new things to look for based on the enthusiasm of the others. In the end, I wasn’t ready to leave. Here are a few images:
So, moral of story: I have never had so much fun at a circus or a zoo. I think my over-productive OCD personality might finally be wearing down a bit to actually enjoy an activity past a half hour. Kudos to this group and Geneva for finally making this happen.
*If you know how to use an SLR, I’ll trade you skills. Like art skills or making jewelry. Let me know!
How fun! I am so jealous. Unfortunately, the only way to get off manual is to stop using it and experiment. You’ll end up with worse pictures at first but then you’ll end up getting even better photos. You definitely have the artistic eye to capture great photos 🙂
Fantastic Photos Lauren! Bravo!
