Field Trip Today

Photography Field Trip
Today our class took a field trip to see some sites and to get some practice on outside shooting. It was a fun trip, but I do not feel I got any really good pictures. I am just not familiar enough with my camera. Both my cousin and another class member take very good pictures. Is it the camera or is it that they just have the eye for detail? That is what I think it is, a good eye. It seems to come so much easier to them than it does me. I guess I just need to practice, practice, practice! I don't mind doing that, I just need to figure out what I am doing wrong and make it better. Maybe with time! Which is something I do have right now.
We have traveled to the Tall Grass Prairie to see the Bison.
While there we found this little creek as well. I love water and tree shots.

At the information office this little one was playing peek-a-boo with his mother!
These two girls graciously came along in 20 degree weather to be our models.

Thank goodness by afternoon it had reached at least 45 degrees!!!

Another tree and water picture.

A classmate taking pictures.

The creek and bridge.
(you would never have figured that one out huh?)

A little one playing by the tree.

Trying to get the lighting just right
along with the pose.

I like this shot. Very casual

and I like the lines.

This is what I came to see!!

Home, Home on the Range.

Where the buffalo roam.

And the cattle have long horns.

OK, that is not the song, but I made it up to fit the pictures!!

I have had a good time today. I enjoy seeing the wildlife,

the land, the open range that our great state is made of.

O-K-L-A-H-O-M-A is OK!

I'm impressed with your photo skills. I love the tree and stream especially. I think part of the process is the good eye. My daughter has it. I definitely don't. She has slowly invested in some good camera equipment and just recently got a zoom lens. I don't know if you read the Pioneer Woman, but she has lots of photography and how to make your work better by using photoshop on her blog.

I like the bison too. Wasn't it nice of them to pose?

The important thing is to have fun with it.
