Photography Workshop - Week One

This week saw the start of my online photography workshop. My lovely friend Leanne recommended Eye Candy Actions to me after she completed their Explore workshop last year. I have had my camera for a couple of months now and only ever shoot in auto mode. This week I have moved that dial to AV mode and the results have been fabulous.

Here are a couple of photo's I have captured this week.

The workshop has been wonderful so far and I am eager to learn more about my camera. Hopefully my photo's will improve and I will have many more to share with you.

On another note, my gorgeous custom made camera strap arrived from the US yesterday. Ruthanne from Eclectic Wotnot was lovely to work with. I selected the fabric and she worked her magic. It looks very stylish and coordinates with my camera bag nicely.

My weekend will be all about rabbit's! My niece is turning 7 and she has requested a rabbit cake along with rabbit cookies and cake pops, so I will be busy bringing that to life, please come back tomorrow to see the results.

Have a wonderful weekend :)


  1. Oh yay! That course looks FAB!!
    Your photos are looking great Katena. I love the cupcakes all lined up.
    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Well I have to say, your pictures look very professional and what a flash camera strap! What sort of camera is that? I wish I could take better pictures, so I might just check out that link you have suggested. Maybe I need a new camera too. Have a lovely weekend Kateena. ;-)

  3. Well done Katena. You've done a great job. The cupcakes shot, in particular is really good. Nicely composed. It leads you into the photo.

    Snazzy Camera strap.
