Photo 101 :: Hey Jude

I've gotten behind on my photo posts because it takes me so long to go through them all!  There are two more posts after this of the finals days of my photography class.  The class came to a close about a week or so ago.

This particular day was just walked across the street to the Nelson-Atkins Museum again but to the front side.  The instructor wanted us to capture images of the sculptures with different aperture settings.  I ended up running into some friends that just happened to be enjoying a nice picnic like dinner on the front lawn.  That turned into me taking more pictures of their adorable son instead of more sculptures, but I like my pictures better.  :)
The front of the Nelson.

I edited the picture above and below to this really cool black & white effect but it wouldn't let me upload them!

Now for some "awwww" inducing pictures of sweet Jude.

I could take a million pictures of this little boy and still want to take more!
Don't you just want to eat him up?!

Jude in front of the expansive lawn where people come to picnic and run around.
I know you wanted more of this toddling toddler.  I promise to take more next time I see him.

Our instructor handed out an awesome card that shows the equivalent shutter speeds to aperture settings, and it tells you what setting will give you the blurred or sharp effect.  Once I locate it, I'll scan it in and post it.  I think it could be really helpful!


  1. Ooh, I'd love the printout! And can't get enough of little Jude!

  2. Black and white would look super cool!!! When are you going to come and take pics of Gooner????


I'd love to hear from you!
