Improvement in Light

Jhon has come a long way in photography. He didn't really jump into the photography band wagon only 1-2years after owning his first DSLR, Nikon D5000. I was frustrated that he has a DSLR but only uses the Auto function (might as well use digi camera right?) so I sent him away for 2-day crash course classes on basic use of DSLR.

From there, his passion bloomed and spread like wild fire.

It's nice to see the vast improvement comparing the  first 100 photos taken to the recent 100 photos taken. Amazing. There is still room for improvement as he has his weaknesses in certain situations. There was no pressure because besides that crash course, everything was self taught.

Anyways, this passion of his was not intended to lead to a business. I wanted him to improve his photography so I can achieve better quality memories. I love outings, doing random things and I want good pictorial documentation. I just didn't intended him to be somewhat obsessed lol.

The obvious improvement I could show is light painting.

These are taken 5 years ago with his first camera trying light painting for fun. At that moment, it was kinda awesome, especially the dragon painting. Now, as I look at it again, not so much. haha



We didn't attempt much light painting after that, probably 2 more times, it turned all turned sub-par.

This was taken a few days ago.

It was spontaneous. We didn't intend to do light painting but I thought, let's try for fun as we were just sitting around the East coast beach at night and BAM.

I won't deny, this was not the first shot because Jhon didn't get to draw the wings right but the technical stuff of the photography, he hit the spot. I was surprised he achieved this level and I am proud of him.

I am so proud that I just have to blog about it.

End.
