picture samples from the new camera

20 01 2007

I posted a few macro shots on my photo blog. The first is a close up of the flowers I mentioned in my last post. The other three are from a bush outside my bedroom window. Click on a photo for a larger view!

I love this camera! (But I still have a lot to learn.)

That’s what I love about a macro lens. The depth of field is not something you can get just by blowing up the picture and cropping. Although I did find I can use the Photoshop blur tool to blur the background and get something similar. The cheap version, anyway. 🙂

Very cool! Keeping having fun and don’t poke yourself in the eye.

You can definitely tell the difference between the cameras. Down the road I’m hoping to get a Leica digital SLR (which comes with a non-interchangable zoom lens) and the Canon EOS 30D (because my film SLRs are the Canon EOS A2 and Rebel and I won’t have to buy all new lenses).

The photos are great.

Thanks, Jen. I know what you mean! Wow. I love it. (Makes me look like a pretty good photographer, eh?)

So far no eye injuries. I guess I’m just a fast learner. 😉

Re: Beautiful

Thanks, JQS. I’ve seen some of your photos, and you have a great eye for composition. Loved the one of your daughter standing in the water on the beach.

Thought about you today

Zane and I were at the Field Museum in Chicago today and they have a great exhibit called Underground Adventure. We got shrunk down 100 times smaller than normal and went underground. Zane took a picture of me an earthworm. The whole time we were going through the exhibit I was thinking of you and George. Then, we went upstairs to the gem collection and in the room was a Tiffany stained glass. I took a picture, it is gorgeous. OK, so then–I find out that there’s a free museum of stained glass on Navy Pier, Zane loved the Tiffany so much he said he wants to see the museum. I think we’re going tomorrow!
