Close Subjects

Ok- I’m totally geeked about my new camera now.

I have one of them thar fancy Sony Cybershots (DSC-H3). Its sort of a “so advanced, its simple– unless you don’t read the manual” type camera. And since I’m not one for all that fancy book-learnin’, I was having issues.

The ‘point and shoot’ in full auto mode thing I got. And truthfully, Sony is awesome at making buttons and menus fairly intuitive. But I have been trying to figure out the tricksy things, like how to take pictures where the subject is in focus but the background isn’t. Things that I could do with ye olde style SLRs.

Well, thanks to MUCH brainpicking of Jason and Voenix (both of them excellent photogs), I have now experienced some minor success at what I want to do.

My subjects for this shoot were my two orchids and my curly, good luck bamboo. Here are my results:

Whaddaya think? Don’t get uber critical on me, though; I’m still learning the camera and how to adjust the settings. Plus, I haven’t done any photography photography for awhile.

    Beautiful colors and detail. A friend of mine focuses her new cam on graffiti art in the city…believe it or not it looks really cool.

    VERY nice! what great detail. I was going to make a joke about the vagina like images you have in the orchids, but couldn’t think of that artist’s name who’s paintings are so vagina-centric πŸ™‚

    Great work though, enjoy the camera!

  5. The Phaleonopsis pics are very nice. Chris, are you maybe thinking of some of the Mapplethorpe’s?

    Your photography is great! Now you need to open a Flickr account πŸ™‚

    I’m glad you decided to get the Sony camera. It’s a very nice camera.
