Sleeping Giant 3/3

Filed under: Photography — sankirnam @ 4:54 pm

These are the final set of photos that I’m uploading from my trip to CT and the Sleeping Giant earlier this month. I don’t feel like registering with Instagram in order to share photos, and besides, I have greater┬ácontrol over the formatting and layout here.

More from Sleeping Giant

More photos from the Sleeping Giant; these are fairly interesting to me in terms of composition. Again, these were taken with all the camera settings (aperture, ISO, shutter speed) on auto. Landscape shots seem to be best for practicing photography since you have time to think; when you take photos with people or animals as the primary subjects you often do not have time to think or plan properly.

I’ve recently taken to amateur photography. I always had an interest in this, but only now I was able to buy a decent camera and get started. I’ll upload photos here from time to time that pass my “stringent” (I’m sure this definition will evolve with time) quality standards.


This was taken at the Sleeping Giant State Park (Hamden, CT).

My current kit: Olympus E-PM2 camera with the standard 14-42 mm lens.

This was my first weekend playing around with the camera, and so I had just left all the settings on auto. I’m still learning about the basics of composition and the exposure triangle (also see here).
