It you are like me you will have a lot of pictures that are not what you wanted. I hate to say how many pictures I delete.
Hopefully we can work on our photo skills in this treat. Please post pictures that you have taken and we will all try to decide what worked or how we can get a better picture next time or even how to save the picture posted.
I will start with some I took today
Can any one tell me why this one does not "work"? Later I will show a picture of this same flower and you will see the different
Very very nice. I like it. I like the light coming through it. I think if you could have gotten more of the flower in the lower right hand it would have helped. And maybe a little more dept to the picture.
Dept is a problem I am having. To much or to little takes away from the picture.
Take this picture the flower is in focus but the Pistil and Stamens are out of focus,
I think they are each good in their own way. But The middle one is the most pleasing to the eye, I think. Too much BG in the first, and not enough in the last. The middle one is balanced. I think I would have liked to see one more, even closer, with less of the bright sunlight in the picture.
Jon, you've scored big-time with that second shot! I LOVE everything about it.
The red is a beautiful shade and the lighting is just right for it. The leaves are all perfect, and pointing in different directions, almost as if posed. I love the shape of them, with the ridged edges. The stage of growth is perfect too, and that little bud to the right suggests new life.
It is obviously a healthy, well-cared for plant. Beautiful photo.
Thank you I agree, I like the second best also, but this is a case where I had no control of the sun. There was a fourth but it was to close and the dept of field was way off. I am experimenting with the F-Stops to get the dept of field that I want and the different lens So much to learn so little brain space to put it.
Jon I like both very good color and in focus but both could use a tiny bit of trimming. What I have just starting to do when I chop/trim a picture is I save the correction by adding a letter to the picture code, this way I do not lose the original and I can try another trim. Plus I just thought of a idea when I was looking at your pictures. I help up a piece of paper to get some idea of what the picture would look chopped.
Here is a picture that I have been playing with. I was not totally happy with it so I decide to practice on the trimming.
This waterlily is in a tub only half filled with water, so I have to bend over to take the picture. I was sold this one as a pink but it is more of a light purple.
I think I like the original the best but what do y'all think
You will have to enlarge to see the different(edited to correct spelling, been up to long today)
You should see some of my experiment. Thought a couple like the sunflowers that look like a water color painting where nice. But the spooky mistake I make this week is very strange. All ways check your light settings. I was taking pictures out doors with the indoor setting. I may share those tomorrow. The pictures had a blue cast to them and the ones in the shade looked like night time.
Everyone sees things different, that is what makes sharing pictures so much fun. I have started looking at things from different angles.
This afternoon at my uncle's I was looking at a plant for caterpillars and I kept seeing the patterns the leaves where making.
Jon, I love that red image. It is beautiful and I can't see a thing that could make it any better. The purple and white one is nice but the center of the flower being out of focus is disconcerting. From what I am almost understanding that is caused by the setting...ummm which one? that controls depth of field.
Brenda the purple and white flower was shot on auto setting and consequently the camera focused on the nearest thing to the lens. Oops! Sometimes when I have a lot of flowers to photograph I get lazy I guess.
F-Stop controls dept of field. It is one of those a** backwards things. The Smaller the F# the larger the shutter opens but the shallower the dept of field. The Larger the F# the smaller the opening the greater the dept of field. The other think you have to remember is the shutter speed, The F-Stop also partly controls the speed. The more light that comes in (lower F-Stop) the faster the shutter opens and closes, less light the slower the shutter speed. The other controlling fact of the shutter speed is your ISO setting. Back in the days of film this was the film speed any where from 64 on up. Now it stands for how many pixels(did I spell that right).The lower the number the slower the shutter speed but the greater the number of pixels. The higher the ISO number the faster the speed.
And that is the limit of my knowledge right now. Back to the books
Jon I was just playing around with that picture, trying to get a effect that I was able to get on another picture but the angle was wrong
