My Valentine Rose

I’ve been absent for a while.  I don’t have a lot of followers.  Actually maybe only one but either way, I like that others can see my posts if they want to!  I took a picture of one of my roses that was given to me by my husband.  I hope you like it!

I went to the Cockerell Butterfly Museum in Houston, TX to practice my photography.  This isn’t as clear as I’d like but I thought I’d share this one.  I’m learning about the different creative modes and aperture is what I was trying to work with.  I found that in a lot of them, the wings were clear but the body was blurry.  I know that had to do with my focal point but I’d like to get better at determining if I’m focused on the right point or not.

My Raindrop Photo

For Christmas, I was given a Canon Rebel T1i DSLR.  It takes great pictures of course!  There are so many automatic modes that if I were to use those only then I end up with a very expensive point and click camera.  I’m learning the creative modes on adjusting the shutter speed, aperture, ISO, white balance, etc. 

It was pouring rain the other day so I thought it would be an opportunity for me to test the movement of water and how I can make it silky but also how I can capture the clarity of the rain as it dropped in the puddle of water that was made by the rain.  After a lot of shots, I only found one that I thought was good enough.  This wasn’t filmed in a studio so you can see the water itself has brown grass underneath.  Anyway, I just wanted to post this on my blog as I am well pleased with it!

I’ll appreciate any feedback/suggestions on the photo.  I can take constructive criticism well.  Also, if you want to comment with some photography tips, I welcome those too!
