This was taken with a manual setting, with an iso of 800. I was trying to get a great picture of the sun kinda streaming down into my yard. I woke up around 6 in the morning to get this. I think that I succeeded in my goal. The only editing I did was adjust the hues in the flowers to make them stand out more like the background. I blurred the railing too. I also used a shutter speed of 1/125, to get as much light as I could into the picture. My other picture that I had didn’t turn out as well as i wanted too. Im still learning how to get the focus right on my camera. But I was attempting to get the flowers into focus so I could blur the background more. My favorite picture was definitely the one of the actual porch. I loved the color schemes that I managed to get. The other photo i had was a photo of a street. I like the leading lines that it looked like it was showing. I also got that morning light into the picture that i love! I didn’t really like all the dark shadows that popped up into different spots. But all in all its a decent picture to me. The picture I put in last was a picture of a NRA banquet I volunteered at. It just wasn’t a good picture. I was focusing to much on light and everything else, except for focusing. I think that shows what a photographer needs to do to make a great picture. You need to pay attention to the smaller things. Those make or break a picture. I fixed it up a little bit better in the raw editing, but it is definitely not what i wanted it to turn out like. Next blog post I plan on getting as creative as i can possibly get!
