Last Photo on the Card in May

….thanks to Bush Boy for hosting this challenge https://bushboy.blog/2021/06/01/last-on-the-card-may-2021/

My Panasonic Lumix camera has been giving me some issues as of late so my brother-in-law suggested that I take some photos and see if the problem is on the display screen or on the lens. If it’s on the display screen the photos should come out okay. Here are the last photos on the card.

These were taken in my studio. The clay mask is a project that I worked on in my first ever pottery class.

Life in Colour – Brown

….thanks to Jude of Travel Words for hosting Life in Colour https://traveltalk.me.uk/2021/01/31/life-in-colour-5/

The colour for this month is brown. Brown is not the first colour that comes to mind for me but in my art I am appreciating this neutral colour more and more. In the family of browns one can find colours such as burnt sienna, raw sienna, burnt umber, chocolate brown, tan, beige, taupe, chestnut, russet, desert sand and beaver. Many of these browns are easily found in nature.

A Photo a Week Challenge – Depth of Field

…thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting the Photo a Week Challenge

Nancy describes depth of field like this:

Depth of field in photography (and light in general) is how narrow a strip of what you are looking at is in focus. In photography, the depth of field is controlled by two things: your f-stop (aperture) and the length of your lens (mm). To narrow your depth of field using aperture, use a smaller f-stop number. This will open your shutter wider and let more light in.

 So if you want to shoot something up-close and personal with great bokeh (blurring) in the background, use a smaller f-stop and a longer lens.

Most of my photography is hit and miss, especially with my Panasonic Lumix camera. When I use the iPhone I’ve figured out how to get bokeh or blurring when I want it. The first two shots were with my Panasonic.

WPC – Favourite Macro Shots in 2017

….this week’s theme for the weekly photo challenge is favourites

I had a hard time picking just one or two photos as my favourites for the year of 2107. I went through the year and categorized my photos into genres. My first post is of my favourite macro shots of bees and a butterfly.

 

Square Sky Challenge – Crane

…..thanks to Becky B. for hosting the Square Sky Challenge in December

On December 8th my husband and I drove to Hamilton to see our daughter. Our granddaughter loves to the crane that towers over her head a block over from where she lives. She loves it best when it moves but today it was pretty quiet on the construction site. Today’s photo managed to capture some blue sky which we haven’t seen too much of in the last few days.
