Nikon D3000 ISO 400 , 200 mm lens Unaltered
If I seem to have strayed somewhat from design related things on this blog, there are a few reasons.
No projects at home or cottage.
No need to indulge. I am trying to save and buy only what I need. I can get consumed with Things, Bits and Stuff, and I want my blog to be my journal, not a catalogue of purchases. While I will always search for Finds for myself and the Shop, and do love to shop, I have so many other interests such as my garden, cooking and my latest obsession......photography. All of which I would like to blog about, as well as the design stuff.
For my birthday this year Mr. Razmataz gave me a piece of jewelry, which I unceremoniously (and perhaps ungratefully) returned and traded in. Nice wife I am? Anyway, I had my heart set on a DLSR camera for home use and for Razmataz. Since then, I have been shooting at least 400 pictures a day and ruthlessly deleting all but a few. For every 100 photos, I may get 1 or 2 that I feel worth keeping.
Tonight I played with the settings. Because it was getting dark, I changed the ISO to 400 and
the Release Mode to continuous. That's when the camera goes click/click, click/click, click/click. allowing the shutter to open and close in rapid succession and capture images very quickly. I found a gaggle ? of ducks and shot them eating grain. (with the camera).
What I ended up with were shots that were artistically out of focus (is there such a thing). I love the blurred images...I think they look very much like they were painted with pastels.
And one last photo because I am into lost feathers lately....
Lost Feather in the water.
