I used my Canon Rebel to capture these shots. I am excited to learn how to use my camera and photo editing software. I captured the first image about midday.  I should have worked a little more on metering because the gravel in the foreground is a little brighter than I would have liked it. The contrast of the wood and the bright red doors is what caught my eye. For the second image, I tried to get as much outside light through a window as I could. For the two focus pictures, I took opposing shots of several different subjects. I settled on these flowers because I like their bright yellow personality. I used a manual focus to get up close on the foreground. Then I adjusted the lens to focus on the flowers in the distance. I took the composition photo of Red Mountain about one hour after the sun came up.  The sky takes up the upper one-third of the composition, and the cactus and brush in the foreground take up the lower one-third of the composition. The natural rise of the mountain to the right gives it a natural asymmetric balance.  The last picture is my dog, Winston. I was able to capture him in the lower third of the frame. He does not like to come near me when I’m holding a camera.

I love living in Arizona where most days are sunny.  The natural beauty we enjoy here in the Sonoran Desert is an ideal photo subject.  I look forward to more practice with my DSLR camera and Photoshop.
