The objects of our photography lesson today were blooming flowers in front of my house and other people's houses. At first, my husband handed me his brother's DSLR camera. He taught me some basic technicalities on holding DSLR in the right way, capturing photos with good angle by adjusting various focus systems in the camera, etc. Not long, I got confused, not focused and felt the DLSR camera body on my hand was getting heavier and heavier.
I gave up.
I decided to use my husband's smaller and lighter camera, Panasonic Lumix LX3. Easier but still quite problematic for me. As expected, I received minor scoldings from my husband as I partially listened to his instructions in taking good photos. Sometimes, I am such a ding dong when hearing theories. I tend to ignore and hear stuff partially. I wanted to just jump straight to practicing the theory, thus, am not able to practice the lesson properly. Bad habit.
Anyway, here are some flowers that I shot today. Not sure if they pass the test or not.
Shoot no. 1: Flowers in our house.
Shoot no. 2: Flowers in front of the public playground.
Shoot no. 3: Flowers in front of someone's house.
The above may not be so good photos. I might have taken the wrong angles of the flowers and focused on the wrong part of the objects in the photos. But thanks to my husband/photography mentor, at least, as a beginner in photography world, I learned something new today. More to come.
