Photography Course at It’s Overflowiing!


Hi bloggy friends! I hope you are enjoying this weekend we did get some snow Thursday night. As I look out my window while doing this post the ground is still covered and it is cold! We went out to dinner last night with friends and I had to get out my heavy winter coat, I guess January is really here now!
I have an Olympus camera which I had really started to hate, none of my pictures were never good, I think there are only a few that turned out good and that was on the nature setting, it does take good pictures of flowers.LOL Not of my home though so when I came to It’s Overflowing last week I immediately thanked God for someone out in blogland who so generously decided to have a photography course on her blog, Finally, I can learn about my camera in terms that I understand, thank you Aimee and her husband who is a photographer btw!
Last Friday we learned about all the buttons and gadgets on our dlsr cameras which some I already knew, I confess I really don’t know what is going on when I press the menu button though but this Friday I learned all about aperture, something I hadn’t a clue about but you see now I do/a little and I’m so excited! These are photos of flowers on my desk in the bedroom, the wall color, when I would take a picture was always an ugly gold, now to me they are fantastic! Here are some pictures I took with different aperture settings! I could only get down to F/4.1, I’m sure I’m doing something wrong but I’ll learn!
{F/4.1}
P1141951
{F/4.2}
P1141944
{F/4.3}
P1141945
{F/4.5
P1141947
{F/5.0}
P1141947
These are just a few of the apertures that I did and I’m thrilled with the pictures that I took, it’s great to learn something new!
So stop by Aimee’s blog and learn all about your camera!
I’m joining her Photography Friday Party today!

Excellent job on the pics! I have a nice camera but still use it on the auto setting. I know I could improve my pics if I would just take the time to figure things out. Thanks for the inspiration!
