Pappenburg (5)

One of the things that I promised Lennard that I would do while I was visiting him was to show him some photography techniques so today we took the day and went out shooting.  We talked about aperture, shutter speed, as well as how to design a photo.  Certain techniques that help to enhance a photo visually and then we put them into practice.  The day was perfect for a photo lesson too, the sun…
