Falling in Love with Auto Focus

Falling in Love with Auto Focus

Moments That Matter: lesson 1: topic 3: focus Wow, discovering whole new capabilities of my camera! This lesson I’ve discovered how to use single auto focus and what a difference jt makes to my photos! I can even occasionally get some halfway decent photos indoors, certainly reducing the amount of blurriness!:) Couldn’t find any way to do continuous or automatic auto focus (camera is a... »

Outdoors in Auto

Moments That Matter: lesson 1: topic 2: more camera settings Working in auto for all pics. 1 – Gardening Success. Daughter had just dug up potatoes, the light was soft, dreamy. Truthfully a lucky shot. 2- Determination. Son cutting out bush. Have been focusing on ‘filling the frame’ and happy with the difference it makes 3- Possibilities.

Playing with Settings

Moments That Matter: lesson 1: topic 1: know your camera Siena portrait- love portratit setting, soft, detailed my new fav setting! Flower Setting – Well I have a long way to go here, just not looking like the foodie shots yet:( Soccer Dog – Zoom Bracketing – Was so so in capturing moving images, boy playing soccer with his dog, but too slow really and then the pictures look too ... »

Playing with angles

Playing with angles

Moments That Matter: lesson 5: topic 1: what’s your angle? I got a new lens (35mm f/1.8) so have been playing around with it. All of these were taken on the Manual setting as well….which I think I need more work with as a lot of the shots had one eye in focus and the other out of focus which was a shame. 1. ISO200, f/1.8, 1/60 – this was probably the best one I took…but it ... »

Siena

8 week online workshop – Getting to know you I like how the eyes sort of capture you and how the eyelashes are so clear, the background is bury and she just looks so cute. I don’t like however where the sun sits in a line across her cheek. »

Hunter Valley Snow Fun

Hunter Valley Snow Fun

Moments That Matter: lesson 4: topic 1: hard light The light was tricky to shoot in as the snow was so white and the sun was so bright so a lot of the pics I took were full of shadows and the kids were squinting. These were a few of my favourite shots: 1. ISO100, f/5.6, 1/320…you can’t see the catchlights in her eyes, but I really like how she pops out against the blurred background. 2... »

Love those baby blues!

Love those baby blues!

Moments That Matter: lesson 4: topic 5: low light and indoor Feels like ages since I uploaded some pics but I have been practising…promise! These pics of my baby girl, Ivy, were taken in the car in her capsule. I had the door open and she was looking into the light, so even though the background is dark and the light wasn’t particulary bright, looking into the light really captures tho... »

Contemplation

Contemplation

8 week online workshop – Getting to know you My 3year old son at the beach, searching for shells. On a winter’s day, taken about 2pm. Warm enough day that the children went swimming (but then they’re crazier than I) I like Sebastian’s concentration on his task, the light on his face highlights how soft his skin still is. not quite rule of thirds but nearly. the still water ... »
