My brother-in-law and I were chatting yesterday (or was it early AM today?) about kit lenses vs. prime lenses and potential outcomes, etc. So today I went out and shot this lot with a Pentax DA-L 55-300mm lens. I shot on manual and most if not all are at: f/8, ISO 200, 1/750. The focal lengths varied from 150mm to 300mm, I think. The biggest problem was not waving the lens around. These are some of the quasi-keepers from a ten minute experiment. The dandelion ones look TONS better full size for some reason. Here's another wall of stuffs:
I didn't mean to shoot this morning. But the light looked pretty good and it had just rained. Then I was only going to post five shots because walls of photos seem daunting. Then, when I saw what I came up with, I got way too lazy to choose. I shot 86 sets of 3 (exposure bracketing) and here are 45.
I try to work on something new every day. Today the point was to crop with the camera. So of the 45 here, I think only 4-5 of them I cropped after the fact. The rest are all full-sized shots. I'm a little red-green colorblind, too, so I'm having fits with editing...in that I really, really don't want to have the stuff look like it came out of Disney Studios.
Maybe one day I'll develop a little discernment with posting...but that's part of why I put stuff in the blog and not elsewhere (much).
Here we go:
...so I guess I can do anything I want. It was a coldish, kinda calm day today. Here's what I got. No discernment. Tell me if you like any of them...and especially why. click...click...click...click.........
Oh, many of these were shot at f/2.8 so that's why nothing seems to be in focus (apart from a narrow, narrow plane). I also may have been waving the camera around some.
Ooops - forgot a few...
