Check out Harvey’s white cat portrait, I am so pleased, even though it’s not perfect. I love learning about camera settings it’s a lot of fun and so inspiring.
I am developing a series on my DSLR camera for Beginners which I hope everyone will enjoy. I aim to make it fun not stuffy and boring. At best the pictures will get better and if I report a fail then we can laugh and learn together.
Learning About Camera Settings
I love Harvey so honouring him with the best pictures I can create really matters to me. He is the perfect model.
Puzzling out ‘Av Mode’ on my Canon
I am pleased with this picture. It is my first try at using Aperture Priority. This is Av on my Canon. It may be an A on your DSLR if you have another type of camera.
At the moment I can see that Av mode allows me to zoom in on a face or close item, and have a softly fuzzy background that frames it perfectly, but I will need to explore this further in another post.
Please join me and co-hosts Bionic Basil and the B Team and Barking from the Bayou and tell us what you have achieved this week? Did you write a great post or post a great Tweet? Let us know by joining the hop!
