I have said this before… Yes, I have. >.>
Maybe it’s because I use a cheaper camera or simply my phone, but I really do suck at photography! That doesn’t mean I don’t get some nice photos. Its just that I will have to take DOZENS of photos to get something that is halfway decent.
Today’s “masterpiece” was a shot I wanted of a bird on the phone line outside. I pointed it out the window, lined it up and pressed the button… 3 seconds later it clicked and I got the above image.
Some would say “Wow, you got a bird in flight!” and they would be right… It’s nice, but it’s a lucky shot and it is NOTHING like what I thought I was going to get. The original idea was for a pic of a bird so I can ask ‘What is this’?
Also, it looks NOTHING like what it did through the screen. You may well be saying ‘Well, duh!’ But what am I supposed to expect other than what I can see on the screen?!
So compare that one against my other pic from today. A Tree Bumblebee on a Chive flower. The pic you see here didn’t look that good on the screen and I wasn’t even sure it would come out in focus because the little missy was moving around on the flower head. Yes, it’s a great pic, clear and in focus. But again it was a lucky shot and NOT what I was going for!
BTW… Expect to see that bee pic as next weeks Wordless Wednesday on my Gardening blog! B-)
Also. Whenever I use my camera flash everything looks yellowish. It’s a weird thing… I think I may be using it wrong. >.>
I really could do with taking a course on how to use lighting and when NOT to bother with a camera at all (natural lighting and all that) and just wait for better weather. With that said I’m going to try and take this course… See if it helps me.
If anyone knows of another free online course I would love for people to send links?
Thanks to delpozziphoto (check out his blog!).
He passed on this link to a facebook page with quite a few links to blogs and articles on photography. Lots to read now… I’m starting on this one. Will need to charge the batteries for my camera! B-)
