My New Obsession

It's official! I'm a "Beginner Photographer"!
I even have a certificate to prove it!

I'm going to frame it.
Here are some of the cool pictures I took over the course of my class.

Sunset on Utah Lake

Gemma modeling some Haute Couture.

Super Yoda!

And it doesn't stop there!
I'm already registered for the Intermediate Class next month!
For anyone interested, Jed Colledge (from Jedediah Photography) is a great teacher!
I would highly recommend him.

Stay tuned for more Harker Photography!

Took this picture last night.
There's a field beside our house with tons of weeds and an old rusty horse trailer.
But at night (after 10 p.m.) with a super-long shutter speed, even the ugly trailer can look pretty awesome.

I believe my shutter speed was 1/8 sec (hand-held believe it or not), f/5.6, ISO 6400.

I also framed my certificate yesterday. It's now hanging proudly in our home office.


  1. Love the sunset on Utah Lake photo. It's beautiful.

  2. I appreciate your ad analysis (sorry of that makes me gay Tom). How expensive are the classes?

  3. Congrats Lesli... you'll be pro in no time. And I must say, I'm super jealous of the new camera. I'm in dyer need of an upgrade.

  4. Thanks for the lovely compliments on my own photography. Always nice to meet a fellow Utah 'tog!

    I do very much like the shot of Yoda - what a great proud pose. What kind of dog is he?!

  5. He was an abandoned mutt, so we don't really know what he is. We think he's mostly Terrier.
