First try

Posted on

Now you know the first part of my news, and I thought that I’ll show you one or two of my first try-outs with my new camera. I would prefer not to do that, but I need feedback from all of you, so I sort of have no choice. πŸ™‚

Here is one of my very first serious attempts to use my new toy. I took these with the ‘normal’ lens, it would probably have been a lot better if I used the zoom-lens. I’m definitely not happy with how it turned out, but at least it’s colourful and the subject of my focus is close to being ‘in focus’…

A Tree celebrating Spring!


About zelmare

In a nutshell: I'm a woman of 'a certain age', I recently moved after living in the same area for 27 years, i raised 3 absolutely fabulous kids (I'm sure you will hear a lot about them, since I am a very proud mama), got divorced, and in due course, met and fell in love with the most amazing man, and i moved to a small town called Nylstroom. A lot of my blogs will most probably be about my new life, my family and friends, and my interests, which are taking pictures, travelling, food, re-decorating, music and books. I am looking forward to meeting a lot of lovely new friends and interesting people! :)

  1. Awesomeness!!!! The telephoto lens would probably have given you an image closer to the one you had in your head – but I don’t think this is bad at all!!! The kit lens has its vices!!!! Depth-of-Field (DoF) is good!!! Colour great!!! Well done mommy!!! Looking forward to what you post next!!! πŸ™‚ **

  2. Look at you girl… the picture is AMAZING πŸ™‚

  3. I love the picture. The main flower is in such focus as are the ones near it, but the background is suitably out of focus.It feels almost 3-D to me. πŸ™‚

  4. I love it – subtle, slightly blurred colour in the background, and then a punch of crisp colour in the middle. It’s beautiful!!

  5. It is a great image, the colours are gorgeous, but the telephoto lens would have given you that blurred background even more. It is all practice and all experience, good luck.

  6. We can expect great things from you if this is the first try. Nice!
