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!

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
