This was my 1000th photo taken with my camera. I know I was excited.
I would go with a higher f-stop to create a greater DOF to encompass the whole flower and it seems a tad underexposed.
Yeah, don't get too excited you need to work on the apertures for the right amount of DOF. H
Nice picture, get excited....after all it is your 1000th. I don't yet understand the whole Apperature/Dof/f stop thinmgs yet but i am getting there. lol
So kind of you to rain on my parade! :lmao:
It's cool! I KNOW I've got a lot of learning to do, but this parade is just simply to celebrate the number.
Unfortunately that was the highest F# my lens has. I am saving up for a new lens.
See above post.
Tiny pic brought the exposure up more than originally edited, but you can see a little bit more detail and pop here. Play around with it a little bit until you get it right.
Nah, you shot that at f/5.6. You need to shoot it like f/8 or 11. I know you have that.
Yep. The 5.6 on the long side of your lens simply means f5.6 is the "fastest" or as "open" an fstop you can shoot with at that length.
Higher F-stop = smaller opening ... greater DOF.
Low F-stop # = Larger opening ... smaller DOF.
--Like said up top, I'm sure your lense goes higher than 5.6
Only, 9000 more to go!
One school of thought, is that it takes at least 10,000 photo's to learn just the basics of photography.
