The Value of Basics

You know the old saying "You must truly understand something before you can teach it."? Well, I'm going to be teaching a photography class and I am in the process of getting back to basics and feeling confident enough with explaining what I know about taking photographs to someone that doesn't already know it and get them to understand it. So, today I took a class for fun. A discussion and then a walking shoot in a great area of Charlotte, Plaza Midwood. I helped someone truly grasp the interaction between f-stop and shutter speed and helped me to realize how to get that strange concept across.

Well, these are a few of the pictures that came out of the shoot. I love to photograph cars and this reminded me of my childhood, no my father wasn't a pimp but my grandfather had a black car JUST like this and I loved that the headlights "winked" at you!

 More to come on the progress of the back to basics movement!
