The Powerpoint really helped me with using Apertures in a live performance gig as I was photographing my first live performance gig on Saturday, 17th November, in The Factory, Porth. The bands I was taking photos of were The Vendettas, from Pontypridd, Blackbyrd, from the Rhondda, and High Voltage, an AC/DC tribute band from Aberdare.
After the Powerpoint we each were given a camera by Darren (the tutor) and started having a go at adjusting the Aperture and Shutter Speed.
When I first started using the camera I was struggling to change the Aperture, but then I got the hang of it and was up and around the room taking photos while adjusting the Shutter Speed and Aperture.
Overall I thoroughly enjoyed the second session of the course and I am looking forward to learning more about photography, and photographing live gigs and events in the future.
