A very good online friend of mine got a new camera recently and is starting to take photos using the manual options her wonderful camera has to offer. And she’s learning really fast. So i decided to fenture into the land of non-autofocus and manual exposure times and shutter speeds. J reminded me of the basics, which I struggle to remember ever just two days later. I will write them down on my next attempts to go manual. But I thought I would share some of the photos of the bloom I tried to capture.
This is one of last years scallion in full seed. I love the pastel shades of purple of the light in the background.
The above was used with all the auto-settings available, but it wasn’t cropped.
This photograph was done with an aperture of 5.6 and a shutter speed of 1/1,250. The camera actually goes all the way to 3200. Maybe not necessary when taking photos of flowers like that
The next one is also all manual with a shutter speed of 1/800.
I don’t cut the grass in the entire garden short. So we have a bit of a photogenic meadow at the moment.
