To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

Day 50 - Happy students = Satisfied instructor

Since I had been going on and on about my cooking lessons, you might recall that today was supposed to be the first one (of hopefully many more).  My students were extremely happy and if success could be measured simply by seeing if your students return, then mine was a great success!  They've already signed up for a second one, and one of them has also indicated that they'd come back for a third!  Of course, that being said, I have to now start thinking about ways to improvise lessons for the returning students.

No serious photography done today - too tired!  So, I just took a few pictures of my pink gerberas in the vase (handheld).  I'm greatly disappointed by the amount of noise I'm seeing at low ISOs.  Since it was indoors, and the vase was far from the window. I had bumped up the ISO to 200.  

However, for two of my low ISO shots, when I tried to reduce the noise in iPhoto, I found a strange line through the frame (sample image below - see the line and the discolouration towards the right of the frame).  I remember seeing this in another one of my photos not too long ago.  I'm not sure why this is happening, so maybe some can shed someone light?  

See the next image - every other setting is the same, except ISO is at 200, but there is no line through this at all.
