Roland's Christmas in July

Friday, July 9

As a Christmas gift for Roland last year I purchased three days of private photo instruction with Ron Niebrugge, a professional photographer who lives in Seward.  

Here we are in July … and he’s finally able to enjoy his Christmas gift.

Roland’s lessons began with some basic instructions on how to interpret the information that his digital camera provides to improve the exposure of shots and better balance the light. He also received some tips on lenses, filters and other equipment that can help improve the quality of a photo under various conditions.

Living in Alaska, Ron specializes in nature photography and was able to expose Roland to some spectacular sites he knew near Seward … and with just a little coaching … he came back with some of these amazing shots. Unfortunately, rainy weather was a challenge, but they did manage to find two days that were nice enough for a shoot … albeit in short windows.

On a cruise like this, the photo opportunities are endless. I think Roland had a lot of fun with Ron and is looking forward to applying what he’s learned a we continue our cruise through Alaska
