Jordan Setterfield

Jordan, this is exceptional.

A great local landmark, good composition, accurate exposure (I really love the balanced natural and artificial light) and excellent technique. This is a 30 second exposure. Count’em! Thirty! This is great craft. It is tack sharp. Gotta learn to love the tripod.

A deserving Image of the Week.

Equipment: Sony A200 with ? what lens did you use here? You shot at 28mm, is it the 18-70mm?

Exposure: 30sec (!) @ f/13 and ISO100

A Couple of Keepers

Here you go:

Tori shot good friend and great model Olivia. Great image and edgy edit.

Equipment: Nikon D200 (I love the images that come out of this camera), 55-200mm lens at 55mm

Exposure: 1/160 @ f/10 and ISO100

Tori Smurthwaite

Kaila got a little crazy and went long. Very cool result. I think using a tripod was the trick to getting such straight lines. Am I right Kaila?

Equipment: Canon Rebel XT with 18-55mm kit lens @ 48mm

Exposure: 1.3sec (crazy 😉 ) @ f/5-6 and ISO 100

Kaila Frostad

Rachel just returned from a school sponsored trip to France for the 65th anniversary of VE Day. They had a great, tiring, time. A beautiful image of the commemorative monument at Vimy Ridge.
