Some Ornament Photos
I'm venturing into photography, which has been on my back-burner for far too long now, but now is finally able to come to the front. I'm learning all over again with a digital SLR so I thought I would share some of my beginner photos. They say the secret to improving is to take tons of photos, so today I played around taking photos of my Christmas Tree. I will probably do that a lot this month! I didn't shoot any of the hand made ornaments yet, but since I need to practice I will get to them! These are my favorite photos from today. I had opened my front door and the light spilled in onto my tree and I couldn't resist playing with it!
I really love this one, just something about the nutcracker, I'm not even fully aware of why I love this photo so much. Partly the sharpness of his hair, the light hitting him. It's hard to be just beginning, but everyone must start somewhere and I have to give myself permission to be a beginner! ;)
I love the sparkles on this bird and the light hitting them.
I liked this one because of the color, and I like the way the glitter looks. I also like how the feathers are softer out of focus further back. I really love the shallow depth of field photos out there and what's known as Bokeh which is basically background blur. I also like the sparkle in the crystal drop. You can see a handmade ornament in the background the Tree that Wendy made for me!
This one loved right away, I love the shininess and the Bokeh of the lights in the background. And you can see a little tatted snowflake in the background too.
I liked this angle too focusing on his beak and the hanging ornament more to the side instead of coming out of his back like the one above. I would have liked to try out a bit deeper depth of field on this one and get more of his body in focus and see what that would be like, so I will keep that in mind for next time.
I like how the sparkles on this guy looks like Bokeh.
And this one I was playing with the exposure, I think the feathers are so wispy and soft looking!
