Been hunting Dragonflies and Butterflies like crazy and working on my macro skills. I just can't get enough of these guys. One thing I have learned is that there is a lot of patience needed to get close to them!
Let me know what you guys think.
I like how they will turn...
Well, I got a SB-800 yesterday and had a chance to go out this morning to test it out.
Its my first flash. I have never really been into flash assisted photography but had to get one ever since I've been doing more and more macro.
So, C&C welcome as well as any other tips, especially any...
Not sure whether these are moths or butterflies. I found them around outside where I live.
I think they are moths because of the hairy bodies but not sure.
Been taking a lot of macro shots lately with my new lens.
Went to Monterey and Carmel for a few days.
I was really hoping to get some good shots at the Aquarium, but that was pretty much impossible because of all the people there!
So, the only shots that I liked out of the trip were some of these night beach shots that I took.
Please feel free to...
I got a new lens today. The Tamron 90mm 2.8 DI.
Loving it! This is my first Macro lens and I think I did ok with it today. Didn't have as much light as I wanted so that I could have stopped down more, but oh well.... That will have to wait until I get a flash!
Here we go...
This a picture of my dad's dog.
Is the DOF ruining this shot or is it ok? Should I aim to have the whole face in focus. Just trying to get some ideas and hone in on my low light shot taking.
I know it is noisy, I want it that way.
This was the first air show that I have been to with my camera. I didn't know I was going beforehand, because it was a surprise trip from my girlfriend. Nonetheless I am pleased with my results. I didn't get all the shots I wanted to get.
I couldn't get over how dramatic the clouds were today...
I was looking forward to go out and do some shooting this weekend but it was raining. So, I thought I'd make the best of it and snap a few in the backyard between showers.
I know the boarders need help. I haven't got them down yet, still experimenting. If anyone has any suggestions for doing...
This is the best one I got...
Not sure if this picture works at all. I was going to just scrap it, but after looking at it, it kind of grew on me.
It was really cloudy and I couldn't get a clear shot of the moon so I thought maybe I'd try to get a sinister one in there with the tree.
Wasn't sure what forum to post this in...
I have a question about getting photos printing on canvas. I found a few sites that offer this service.
My question is, has anyone on this forum ever had this done? Someone I know wants this done for their house to put on the wall. They want a picture...
Ok guys and gals. I never really take portraits and don't really have the setup for it but I finally saw my nephew tonight after a long hiatus.
Just wanted some input on if these are any good. I know the compositions could have been better. What I was wishing that I had was a 50mm 1.8. Because...
