Hi! Welcome to The Secret Photographers Guide to Capturing Pastel Skies E-course. Firstly I want to say a big thankyou for signing up. After you are done reading through the content and watching the videos you will know exactly how the professional photographers capture those beautiful colours in the sky so easily! But first, how did I learn all this stuff?
Ever since I was a little girl I have loved cameras and taking pictures. My first camera was a pink Kodak Extralite 10 that I was given for Christmas when I was six. I used to take pictures of my little dog Benji, my annoying older brothers and anything that looked interesting to a six year old.
Through the years my cameras have changed but I have never been without one! It wasn’t until I moved overseas, seeing so many amazing places, that I really got back into photography. Once returning home to Australia I decided to do a photography course with a good friend of mine. I had always wondered how people would capture those beautiful photos of the soft fluffy water at the waterfalls rather than the harsh ugly photos I was taking. How did they captured the beautiful colours in the sky yet have the foreground so perfectly exposed? My attempt turned out to be the typical blown out sky with absolutely no colour in the picture whatsoever!
After my first lesson I was keen as mustard to put what I had learnt into place. So that weekend, I ventured into the City to do some photography of the buildings lit up at night. I set my camera up exactly how the teacher had explained and did my first ever long exposure. I was blown away. I couldn’t believe how easy it was and I was immediately hooked and wanted to photograph everything. So that’s what I did. Every chance I got I was out taking photos. Thats what has shaped me into the photographer that I am today, the drive and passion and the persistance and practice.
Now that I have all this knowledge and skill, I’m so excited to share it all with you. All I ask is that you read through the content thoroughly, watch the videos and then get out there and practice. The only way to really cement something in your mind is to do it over and over again! So lets get started…..
