Thank you! That helps a bunch! I will be spending some extra time learning about my camera, rather than just shooting..I appreciate the critiques, and look forward to doing the next assignment with a little more understanding. Much appreciated! 🙂
Haha…Well turns out I was also(confused ).
I thought I explained about the automatic and manual part of the photos in my first response. They probably were(shot in auto), except for the one being shot in shutter speed priority(is that an auto setting? and I am just being dumb?) and the 2nd one I shot in macro(I was under the impression that changed the DoF)
I assume I am just confusing you more since I was totally confused about my camera. I have found an online manual for my camera and figured out I am able to change these settings(shutter and aperture). I do want a serious critique and I didn’t know my equipment well enough, so if it’s ok with you I would like to re-do the assignment.
Should I post them here(In this post) or make a new one..when I am ready to submit? (If I am allowed to do so.)
and sorry about all the confusion!
Yay, so I had a friend help me out..and I found a manual online (on a Sony UK site go figure..lol) I see that there is a way to use the manual dial to change some settings? I think I read that right…anyway..I would love a critique on these images since I did do them for this lesson..but if you think it would be in my best interest, I can take a different set while figuring out these settings that I didn’t know existed! I’m pretty excited to figure out my camera does more than what I thought…I thought it was just a regular old limited point and shoot..and dslr’s were the only types that you could set differently…but guess I was wrong…
Haha, and when I stated earlier I used “Shutter speed priority”..I was under the assumption that meant I was adjusting the shutter speed manually..only to figure out, I have to change those settings myself first and the dial is just a quick way to get to the setting you previously had it on. (If that makes sense.) I think my light bulb may have went off..at least I hope! 😆
Anyway, whatever you think is best..just let me know!
Oh, no biggie! 🙂 I can definitely see how that happens…especially with so many assignments to follow up on.
The 3rd image..I’m about 95% sure that was on automatic setting. It was just a cool accident.
The first image, I believe I had it set on “shutter speed priority”…yet, since I am always switching to different settings to try things out and taking LOTS of photos at one time..I’m not for sure.
The 2nd image, I had it set on macro and adjusted a few things..including the zoom. I “assumed” the macro setting is an asset(if you will) to the DoF. I could totally be way off here..but that is my impression.
You see, I own a Sony Cybershot DSC H2…Which was given to me without a book, strap or anything…so, I am kinda lost on whether or not I am able to go in and change things in the menu. I have searched through the menu many times, but there is not much there to adjust or that I understand rather. Unless I am missing something?
Anywhoo, I usually only adjust buttons(dial) on top of my camera and am very limited on what to choose from.(Twilight, portrait, landscape, beach, etc. options)
Any suggestions are surely welcome. 🙂
I am working towards purchasing a DSLR sometime soon I hope..so suggestions there are also welcome!
I want to go very in depth into photography(I would eventually like to work toward a degree, when my son starts school!)..I have always loved taking photos, yet have a hard time grasping all of the concepts. I have mostly just relied on my “eye for it” and editing abilities(that’s a lot of the “fun” part for me.) …I have been showing my photos for awhile now actually. :geek: https://www.facebook.com/pages/HeavenLee-Photography/10150139131100182 You can see some here!
I joined this community to get serious..and am very determined to learn lots of things that have “fallen through the cracks” for me too. 😉
Are these that bad you are putting off critiquing them?? 😉
I’ll just keep checking.
thanks! 😀 😀
I think this month we increased quality a lot! I personally do like very much all photos, but especially yours (100248) and Heaven’s.
Have a nice weekend everyone all over the world !!!
Grats Michael ! ..Very nice shot..I particularly like the vivid color contrast!..Well deserved!
Oh, and thanks! 🙂
Ok everyone, I’m going out on a limb here and straying away from my typical flower shot. This is my first exploration with filters. This is a high/contrast blue filer on a pink rose. I actually can’t stand roses so this did the flower justice in my book. 🙂 I do like lots of flowers though, don’t hate on me!
This photo is very nice..love the textures and high contrast!
My entry 😀 ..I LOVE flowers!
