It’s been a busy week I have had several assignments and I have been doing my best to complete the first one. Photographing Historic Old St Andrews. Here’s a few of my photos from St Andrews.

i have been playing around with shutter priority and to capture movement and not using a flash in low or no light conditions. Here’s what I have come with.
This photo was taken with a hand held camera at night of my trucks instrument panel
Here’s a photo on moving traffic
Today I took the time to edit a couple of my photos with Photoshop CS 4. I just got the program last night here’s the fruit of my efforts.

Well I am still at it! Today it was too cold for me to take any photos outside so I did a little inside work, then I took a few pics. Here’s my attempt at macro photos with a black back drop. It’s all new to me.
Can’t learn unless i keep taking photos and I am not too old to learn!
Today was a great photo day for me. I took over 400 photos. Seems some days I get on top of things and seem to see lots of photographic things.

I’ve taken lots of photos over the last few days. Most were deleted but I do have a few that I really like. Hope you will too.

Time sure flies by, I am still at my photography! Seems sometimes like I am not really getting any better. I will continue to work on my composition and exposure.
Here's the best of my Seagull photos:
I also got some snaps of Mary Kayaking:
There are plenty of Digital Photography tips at DPS for beginners. I keep reading them over and over. My tips come down to practice practice practice. I take lots of photos most everyday. Most are deleted but I can see some improvement in my photos. Keep the camera close to you and experiment with the tips you read about on DPS. The other day I was at a Patriot Guard Mission for a WWII Veteran and I decided to take my camera. There were many challenges to get exciting photos with the sun and shadows plus all the people. But I shot away and I hope I've learned something from the day. Here are some of my best shots.
Took about 100 shots and the Sun and shadows where hard to deal with. In side at the ceremony I did get some photos that where a little better.
Pretty close quarters. I'll keep practicing.
