First Picture

Uploaded: January 17, 2006


This picture was taken at a nervous state. When I first walked into the 2 room school house the kids were shy and were not receptive to the camera. When they allowed me to take their pictures I felt I needed to do it quickly and I was pretty excited because the natural light was phenomenal. I believe my aperature was set at F8, ISP was 100, and my shutter was around 1/50.

After taking this shot I realized that the emotions coming off of the girls represented each of the responses I was getting from the students by being there. They had never had their picture taken and most of them had never seen a digital camera. They were either really curious, sort of neutral, or very excited about the whole experience.
