Greetings, volks. Welcome to Hohenfels Volks, THE place for our place! Welcome to another post.

With the wonderful weather and some time to relax, I haven’t done much posting lately. I apologize, but keeping up with family, work, and photography has kept me busy. I hope everyone has been enjoying the last week or so of great weather and the joy of spring! With the start of Spring and better weather, I know I’ll be out more with my cameras and family making some great shots.

Speaking of great shots, it’s time to talk about some ways we can improve our photography. One of the best ways we can improve is to learn to look, see, and use what we have to get the shot we visualized. To that end, we’re going to start a new weekly exercise here at Hohenfels Volks. Rather that going back to themes right now, I thought we’d try this to see how it works out.

The exercises may involve themes, but will revolve around techniques and learning by placing limitations or requirements for certain shots. Should anyone want to post your results, we’d be more than happy to accept and put them up here. Of course, your pics do not have to be related to themes or exercises to be put up, we’d love to see what you’re doing with your camera!

Here's a pic from Prague to get the juices going!

Hohenfels Volks: Bread Basket
ISO 800, f/5.6, 1/25, 55mm
The Bread Basket. Rustic rye break in a restaurant in Prague. Metered for the bread shadows, and stopped down 2 stops.

That’s about it for today. Tomorrow we’ll do something on limitations and expectations, leading into Monday’s exercise. I hope everyone will tune in and start to look for some great shots. Have a great evening and see you tomorrow!

Don’t forget to post any of your images you’d like to see here at the Hohenfels Volks Facebook page. Of course, commenting on both Facebook and here is always appreciated, too! Don't forget, we're on Google+, too!
