First shots

7 posts in this topic

First pictures with the new camera. I have lots to learn so C&C always welcome with any of my pictures. There wasn't much moving today with the cold and wind blowing. The squirrels wouldn't even pose for a photo. The one good thing was the geese were flying slower for me.

Nice shots!, I also just got a new camera for my birthday, nothing special but I'm stoked (fugi fine pix s1000), now if I could just learn how to use it properly hehe.

I would love to learn how to snap pics of birds but never had any luck, Have fun with your new toy and I will keep my eye open for new pics from you.

Nice shots Nymph. That first is stellar! The second one is a little soft probably because your focus was locked on something other that a bird. Probably the feeder. My suggestion would be to lock your focus on a bird by holding down your shutter button half way and put your active target on the bird. Then keep the button pressed half way and recompose your shot and complete the shutter release.

Good stuff tho! Fun isn't it!!!

Thanks Mike. I did a little work with them. The Goldfinch shot was a bit difficult for me at the time. The feeder was swinging in the wind and I wasn't holding the shutter button down and holding it.

I like what you did on those. That first shot is really great with that crop. I love it. The second is much sharper now and the crop also helped it.

If you're not familiar we have a photography club in Hutch. Starting in January we meet on the 3rd Wednesday in the Library basement. This month will be on the 4th Tuesday in the same place.

Think about it. We have a lot of fun!

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
