And the fun begins……

If only I didn’t have to go to work today!!  That’s what I kept saying to myself as I got ready this morning.  Yesterday was a busy day spent cleaning up and doing laundry – you know all that fun weekend stuff – so I didn’t get too much time to experiment with my new DSLR.  However, I did go out to my garden to play for a little bit and these are the results.  I’m really pleased with the quality of the photos from this camera so far, and this is only the beginning.  I still have a lot to learn about my new toy.

  1. Very nice crisp detail and colors.

  2. looks like you’re going to have great fun with your new toy, I must say I’m rather jealous

    • Yes, I a looking forward to just getting in the car this summer and driving to random places to experiment. I would love to take photography classes, but since I don’t really have the time and I am so far away from places that give lessons, I will just have to learn by doing!! 🙂 And don’t be jealous – your camera must be a pretty good one because your photos are amazing!

        You should look online there are a number of good online courses to choose from.

      • I too am learning by doing, equipment definitely helps but I’m currently using a mixture of a borrowed Canon 10d (6mp and 10+ years old) and my trusty fuji hs20exr bridge camera. I’ve only done the one basic 2 hour course and I definitely learned from it but I think practice and your eye are far more important. Know your gears limitations and then you’ll be able to push them. I’m very flattered that you like my stuff, why don’t you join in some of the challenges from Nick Exposed, they’re certainly making me think more about what I’m doing.

      • I would love to take some online courses and join in the challenges from Nick Exposed, but right now in my life I am having a hard enough time keeping up with my blog and my other hobbies LOL.

  3. Great shots. Looks like your off to an amazing start.

    • Edith, you must think I am absolutely horrible because I have not been responding to any of your comments, but I just found out they have been going into my spam folder for some reason. I am really enjoying my new camera and look forward to many summer photography outings. Thanks for your comments :).

    Very nice Cindy, #’s 1 and 2 especially.

    • Thanks Jeff! I really like #1 as well. Did you notice that I have been taking advice from talented photographers like yourself, and I cropped it down to a smaller square area because I found the background distracting from the beauty of the iris. You guys are having a really good influence on me!! 🙂

  6. Gorgeous!!! Really beautiful!!!! Sooooo jealous!! 😉 **

    Love the photos! I’m doing laundry today…do you want to come over and help? There are a few things you might like to take pictures of here 🙂

    • What? Take pictures of your dirty laundry? No thanks!! LOL 🙂 Wait – let’s back up here. You’re a man, and you do laundry?!?! I can’t let my hubby do laundry or he would just throw the lights in with the darks. Now, if you actually sort the laundry, you realize that is a form of organizing right? LOL 🙂 By the way, I’m glad you liked my flower photos. I just love how bright and cheery they are.
