Dumplings, Yoga Teacher, Boats and a Wheel

What dumplings, a yoga teacher, boats and a wheel have in common? Actually nothing, except my intention to use these photos to post for the Tech of the Month of Perelincolors, which she hosts simultaneously at the Photo Rehab of this blog, and at her blog.

This month she took us through a play with the ISO value, reminding us that: “exposure is determined by a combination of three factors: shutter speed, aperture and ISO value, or in other words, how long the shutter is open, how wide is opened and how the sensitivity of the sensor behind the shutter is calibrated. ”

I choose these three images, each shot with different settings but without flash.

  1. Beautiful, there is peace everywhere. OK, your yoga teacher radiates peace, plus she is beautiful so this was easy 🙂 Seriously, thanks for the tips, I ll definitely have to try them. You are doing so great in color too, brava!


    1. I fully agree with you Sally! It is not easy, at least for me. When looking for photos for this post, I realized that I hardly ever did night photography. I made some last month to practice long exposure but not much more. Thank you for the encouragement.


  2. Yay! You put the like button back! There have been many times I didn’t have words to share, and wished I could click that button to let you know that your work touched me. I love the photo of your yoga teacher. You really have a gift for portraits.


  3. Great job! Most of the time, I can’t hand-hold at 1/80 . Your dumplings are really sharp! And, at first i thought the title said “dumpy yoga teacher.” 🙂


    1. She is the best teacher ever, and a fantastic person. I have shot this inside the school and the natural light was not enough, hence the high ISO. I left it as is to post here, but I have post processed this and the others in several ways, and it looks great. Well, she looks great with or without editing. Some people are simply beautiful.
      Thank you!
