Wow! I really love these pictures, @austinvinar They look so crisp & clean and look at those yellow eyes. What an amazing Creator we serve! 🙂
There’s only one thing that I could think of. You’re so close to using the rule of thirds in the first image. The head is almost spot on on the 2 intersecting lines in the top right corner of the grid. I…[Read more]
This was the best I could come up with for your suggestion of bright and dreamy textures! I was out shooting the sunrise the other day and was like that bokeh could work for the latest photo assignment. When I came to look at it on the computer, I was disappointed the sky was so blown out. I’m not sure if the text will work or not, but I thought…[Read more]
The other day we went to the Botanical Gardens to take photos of the flowers. I got this one (among many! 🙂 ). For some reason the background ended up being black with the flower the only thing in the light. I know you can get this effect using a flash/flash ring, but I didn’t use a flash. I was curious about why it happened. 🙂 Does anyone…[Read more]
@loganlamar – Oh yes, I know the ones you mean. That would be annoying! Our old family camera used to have one like that. This one is a lot better than them!
True! I suppose I was thinking of it from the perspective of a girl that wears skirts, often without pockets. 🙂
I don’t know if this is something a lot of people know about or not, but I recently got given a lens cap holder and it’s great! If any of you are like me (always misplacing your lens cap! 🙂 ) then you should check it out. Basically, it goes onto your camera strap and there’s a little groove to click your lens cap into. That way it’s…[Read more]
I admit, often when the weather is dreary I don’t really go out and shoot. But now I’m hanging out for a “dreary day” to getting some more unique shots! 🙂
Not sure if this was really what you’re after, but I’m submitting it in case it is! If you look close enough there’s even some emus in the background. 😀
@elianafranzenburg – Something I like to do when adding text to image is playing around with different fonts and sizes. Making the “important” words big and a different font can add a bit more of a punch to it. Sometimes, I use the eyedropper tool to pick out a colour from the image. That way the text colour matches perfectly.
Thank @dfrazer, @jamesstaddon. @austinvinar and @buddingphotographer for your quick responses. I’m definitely going to purchase them! If anyone has any tips on how to use the flash ring or extension tubes, that would be great! 🙂 Ha! I’m thinking that macro photography takes a lot of patience after chasing some ants around outside for awhile! ;)…[Read more]
My uncle is currently at our place visiting from Germany. He has some camera gear that he doesn’t want any more, which he’s happy for me to buy from him for a discounted price. Most of it I’m not really interested in, as I have better gear already, but he does have some extension tubes (I think that’s what they’re called 🙂 ) and a flash…[Read more]
I’ve been focusing on taking photos to sell on Lightstock over the last couple of months. I thought I’d post this picture. I’m interested in knowing anything that I could have done better. 🙂
Here’s the settings –
Shutter Speed 1/250 sec.
Focal Length 70mm
Lens – Canon 70-200mm f/4
Camera – Canon 60D
@elianafranzenburg – You can hover over the “Store” button on the menu and click “training” on the drop down menu. On the page it takes you to, you’ll find a Pro Membership option that you can add to your cart.
Hmmm. . . That didn’t work unfortunately, @dan-cope. I have 2 computer screens and basically Lightroom is open on one screen and then on the other screen the picture I’m editing is blow up really big and has a few buttons on it, but nothing much. I can’t look at anything else on that screen while I’m doing stuff in Lightroom. Sorry, I might not…[Read more]
