Since so many people write, and comment,
and ask me about how I take the pics for my blog,
I thought I would do a little post about it!
Thanks - by the way - for reading!
Ker-plunk .... caught in mid-drop!
However, it wasn't just "good timing."
It took about 20 attempts to get the shot.
Because of the "delay" in point-and-shoot cameras,
it was hard to say what would hit where!
(Kinda like weight loss, eh?)
I am getting more comfortable with the new camera.
After my other one broke. link
To get this "depth of field" (where the background is "fuzzy")
I use a macro setting but in a telephoto mode.
I am more than 10 feet away from the rail here.
Let the camera do the work!
A rare snow day in Dallas, Texas! (yesterday)
The snow needs the contrast of the fence to be seen, I think!
Sometimes I use iPhoto to enhance the color.
Just to make it more realistic.
A fountain picture, on night setting
Could have used a tripod here - just by hand on night setting
Cell phone picture (one of my faves)
A little decorative poppy pod close up
With natural light. Same as before... about 10 feet away.
Sometimes I use a tripod with a timer,
so I don't get the little bounce/movement
from pushing the button!
I have a very simple little $100 camera.
But it has served me well!
Last year - with Christmas lights... on Night setting with a tripod
And this concludes my show and tell for today!
Thanks for reading! Like with so many things in life,
I think it helps if you love what you do.
Learning is easier and recall is splendid when you love what you do.
It's almost automatic - if not effortless!
