Phhotography lessons so far

I just finished my 5th photography class (how is this going by so quickly?) and so far I find it really good. It's definitely teaching me the basics, and I'm learning how to use my camera in different scenarios.
One of my ah-hah moments so far is using aperature for depth of field. I know this is "easy" for people who know what they are doing, but for me it was an exciting discovery (and something that completely highlights how much I can manipulate my DSLR vs. my point and shoot).

Next challenge is to be more conscious of composition and "filling the frame" rather than relying on touch ups and cropping after the fact. I'm looking forward to more and more practice!

Great photo! Aperature is my favourite feature. What lens are you using? If you get a 50mm lens, its even more fun.

Helloooo. That place is amazing. I'll definitely be popping in there next time I'm in TO.

That was a big Ah-Ha for me too!

I have gotten so lazy with my shooting. I have so little time to do it now that it isn't until I sit down at the computer that I realize I missed on the DOF (my aperture is always set too low)...

I want to take a bite out of that orange!!!
