I'm prepared for 2012 :-)

I will be joining the Port Adelaide Camera Club in the New Year and have printed off their Meeting & Competition Schedule on some card so that I can carry it with me in my camera bag.

Hopefully, over the next year with the help and inspiration from the members of this Club, I will be able to produce some great photos I can be proud of.

Time for some self-evaluation ;-)

I read an interesting article HERE about self-evaluating your photos.

With the New Year about to start, I think it is perfect timing for me to articulate (big word ;-) ) what I am trying to achieve with my photography skills (such as they are)

So, after reading this article, my goals for 2012 are to:
  • produce a better consistency in focus - i.e. have the focus where I intended the focus to be.
  • have a better awareness of image composition – being more aware of what is in the background – could it be better?
  • improving my understanding of what all the numbers mean ;-)

Hopefully, I will be able to improve my skills and produce some really great photos that can tell a story and connect with the people viewing them ;-)

Example of a shot where focus could have been better ;-)
The place mats should be more in focus - I am happy with the out of focus background.
Need to play with the Fstop some more ;-)

Tryout Tuesday

With Christmas preparations, Tryout Tuesday was a little late ;-)

I have always wanted to make the Mars Bar slice and I have tasted several different versions.  I am happy to say I like this one the best ;-)

Recipe is HERE

The bowl is something I made whilst doing ceramics - I love bringing it out each year ;-)

Playing with my camera

The weekend was wet and rainy, so what is a girl supposed to do?

go out side and take some photos, of course ;-)

the above photo was taken by my hubby - being taller, he could get a better angle ;-)

Playing with the settings

Have been playing with the camera settings after reading some interesting blogs

I am loving NOT having to use the flash in low light situations by changing some of the settings

I am loving the fact that I CAN use the flash without causing the picture to blow out ;-)
