Think I need to work on my Portrait shots! The Bugger got bitey too so must remember, 50mm, wide aperture and stand the hell back!
I am going to invest in a 50mm Prime lens though. I found out last night that the stock lens with the camera while very good for getting fairly standard shots and a great wide angle 18mm it only captures up to 8 megapixels per shot. The D3300 can take up to 24 megapixels and a fast prime lens would be able to maximise it’s potential. (Credit to This Week In Photo for furnishing me with this info!) And it’ll force me to think about composition, position and I’ll be able to do better Bokeh!
Great day today, cold and crisp and I managed a shot of a Kingfisher too…
The picture above is not mine but is what a Kingfisher looks like when the sod stays still and is good enough to wait until you’ve taken the picture… (Credit to the website I snagged it from)
This was my effort…
Prize for the first person to spot him… I’m still proud I managed to get two shots off with him in the picture. The other one was completely unusable but hey ho!
Other shots I managed to get today are:
1st Bridge on the Aylesbury Arm Of The Grand Union Canal
This Could Be The Perfect Saturday Morning
I’ve heard a rumour that tomorrow morning, about 5:38am the ISS is going to pass overhead and Saturn, Venus, Mars and Mercury will be there too and it’s meant to be clear apart from fog so I will be on a hill trying to get a long exposure without a tripod, freezing me bits and you will probably get a few blurred images tomorrow, sorry in advance!
I Tweet to nearly 200 followers, who’d have guessed! (He’s not the Messiah, he’s a very lousy photographer)
Google+ is here > (One day I’ll do more here)
And Facebook Thingy for my nearest and dearest. I’m not picky!
