This is one for water. This is the fountaing infront of our clubhouse. I just kept playing with the settings until I got the shot I liked.
This water shot I know it's not close up, but I used my TV setting on my camera to blur the water, and then did some color adjustments in PE6 to get pump up the color. This was take at the San Francisco Zoo.
So for the tip. Hm just get in there and experiment with your editing program, see what you can do. If you don't like it it's not permanent just reset.
Okay so what is this, well the third topic tea. So this is how I make ice tea. Again the lighting, but I like the color variation in the tea, and the detail.
And of course the finished product. My hubby is finding my new photo subjects a bit strange. This one I put down a piece of scrapbook paper. and my orange straw. I'm really happy with the way this one turned out.
So my tip as a beginner, don't be afraid to take multiple shots from multiple angles. Don't forget to have fun, and remember to have fun.

This is one of the first pics I took with my new Canon Rebel, I'm not sure what about it is I like about it but I just like. Brinn is just so relaxed it's the last day of school, she's got on her favorite clothes, and eating her favorite snack. Totally unaware of the camera
What caught me off guard was watching the WW2 vets we still have here that live in the park. They have such pride and joy when they look at the flags, that were all around us. One man read a poem about what the flag stood for, and he was very emotional. It made me emotional too, we forget how lucky we are to live here. How free we really are. Our country has it's problems but I would still rather live here while God keeps me in this world than any other place.
