January 24, 2009

Our photography class went on a sunrise photo shoot this morning to the Mission of Nombre de Dios. It is a very old Catholic church and cemetery (founded on September 8, 1565). The setting was lovely, however the fog made the sunrise a complete dissapointment. There really wasn't much of any sunrise, but on the upside I got to put into practice some of the ideas that I have been learning about in the classroom. So for the next week you are going to see photos from this mornings outing.

I think I will start with crosses. The Great Cross, made of stainless steel stands 208 feet high over the marshes of the Matanzas River.

Above: So much fog and so little light. (1/320s, f/4.0, 7:30 am)

Above: A bit more light and less fog. (1/800s, f/4.5 7:44 am)

Above: Fog is almost all gone and the sun is up. (1/1000s, f/4.0, 7:56 am)

Above: The light reflecting off of 4000 small wooden crosses. (1/30s, f/3.5, 7:26 am)
