what a cool shot!!
Boy that is RED, Great Shot Dianne
May want to back off the saturation a little.
Thanks ya'll! My back yard was like grand central station today! Birdies flying everywhere, male sparrows fighting over a lovely lady, 2 rabbits - one being chased by the other, and I couldn't snap photos fast enough and my battery died. I just got lucky on Mr. Red.nice shot!
Thanks! I just got lucky on him!Cute shot!
Thanks Connie!Wow, talk about "in-yer-face!" This guy really was checking you out! LOL! You are definitely doing good things with that new 300mm lens!! :smile:
I agree with Hangin Tree, that I'd back off a little on the saturation and see if you can open up the shadows a little to bring out his eyes more, separate them from his black mask....
OK, Missy, now you've had your fun playing with the birdies. Let's get back to practicing with that portrait stuff, hear?!!! Set up the backdrop, camera, tripod and a chair in the living room. Sit the kids down, one by one, with their musical instrument or some object to hold representing an instrument and fire away! The more you play around with this at home the more comfortable you will feel with your gear when you are at the actual shooting session for those recital portraits. That's coming up pretty soon, isn't it?
Sometimes it's necessary to add more saturation but at other times it's necessary to back it off a bit....how do you have your D50 settings configured? You may have the saturation set a little high in the camera -- I think the default is for images to "pop" right out of the camera, which in most cases is fine but in some instances is not what you really need.Well, I really didn't do anything with saturation, but I'll play with it some more. On the portraits, it's hard getting into the church when I have someone to practice on. Right now, I'm trying to read up on how to properly set up the speed lights and need to watch the DVD on the Fong stuff. I really haven't had enough time to do much - and Sunday's disaster really deflated my balloon in more ways than one!
Thanks! I was glad I caught it! LOL!Nice in your face capture, Dianne.
Great shot Dianne. It looks like he's trying to figure out what lens you have :biggrin: . It's a real beautiful bird. I wish we had those.
