Through the lens

IMG_0360I recently finished taking a photo class in Charlotte and really enjoyed myself. We didn’t do anything on auto the entire time, so I got more comfortable with the settings and all the fancy shmancy stuff you can do with a DSLR.

I took out my own camera earlier today (not a DSLR, but a nice camera) and played around with some of the settings. I need to do more fanagling, though, because some of my pictures were fuzzy when I didn’t think they should be.

Here are some pictures I took during or for the photo class. They were taken downtown, at work, around where we live and in MN.

Don’t go chasin’ waterfalls! Unless that’s what you’re supposed to do for class.

An accident with the wrong settings. But cool! And that’s the Bank of America building on the right. I guess money DOES grow on trees.
