Macro Manual 1

I took these with the new Rebel set on M for Manual (M stands fro Mind Blowing)
 Trying to blur part of the photo and sharp on the other
 It seems while I am focusing on focusing I forget to COMPOSE the shot... Practice still needed

How did I do folks?

The last is my favourite. You seem to be going about it very systematically ;)

I thought you did excellent - I like the second to last - the blurring and the focusing together. Whew. sandie

nicely done!

Well, the last pictures shows that it's almost nothing much, but all your other shots made it something extraordinary!! I'm guessing it was the angle and the camera. I was trying to guess what it was. It looks like a wood flower! That's right, it looks like wood growing out of a rosette of leaves!!! If this is your practice session, I can't WAIT till you start getting serious!!!

Ginny said...

O.K. now that I look back at it, I can clearly see what it is and how you shot it, and it is a live leaf and a dead one, but it still looked like some kind of blooming petrified plant at first!

I think you're doing a marvelous job with the Manual setting. I usually forget at least one thing when using that setting. You're a quick learner, and I like these photos.

Rose said...

I think you are getting the hang of it!

Andrew said...

Many thanks for sharing.

Ann said...

I think you did splendid. Practicing is half the fun (sometimes) at least when it's not getting frustrating....lol

TexWisGirl said...

Angela said...

I think it looks super Sandra! Your ahead of me..I still have much to go through in my settings! There sharp to me and I really like your header in mono shot as well-

Pauline said...

I think you are doing great. That's an understatement from someone who just can't get the hang of depth of field. Manual terrifies me. Keep up the good work - I love it!
