Learning about light and exposure

I love my photography course!  I'm continuing to learn what makes a great photo but each day I realize how much MORE I have to learn!  {And how much more equipment I wanna buy!!  Yikes!}  I grasp the concept of light, but then need to add aperture. Then I realize shutter speed plays a huge part and never mind ISO which we haven't gotten to yet!  It's been a blast and the online Facebook group has been so fun to be a part of!  We share our photos and get feedback and then we can see other students' photos to help us grasp new concepts too!  

So here are some of my practice shots from this week.  Not perfect but I'm learning!

We talked about light outdoors....  And reflectors.

And indoors... Getting that sparkle in the eyes aka catchlights.

And then we moved on to exposure stuff.
Look at my blurred background... {bokeh - I'm so fancy!}  
Oooooo I'm learning!

My most cooperative model got a bug bite under his eye Friday night.  Poor guy.  Hopefully it clears up soon so I can practice more and get some more cute pics!!
