Some of these have a very yellow tinge to them. Now I have to learn how to adjust that! They have an interesting look to them too...not sure how I feel about it yet.
The next two photos were taken in the evening using Sepia mode. I love the way they turned out. Now if only that one petal was straightened out!
This photo was taken the next day with natural light. Not as focused/sharp as it should be though. The framing isn't that great either, need to remember to pay more attention to that!
My camera is a Canon Powershot a630 and while I love it, it doesn't have all the benefits of a pro or semi-pro camera so I'm a little limited in that. For instance, a question for those of you with DSLR cameras; does having different lens (50mm or other) make a difference in getting the "bokeh" (the out-of-focus/blurry background stuff) effect? So far, I've only really been able to get that in macro mode. Even when I have the camera set to the widest aperture (2.8) I still can't get the dramatic focus/out-of-focus looks...
If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them. I've been reading some of the tutorials from PioneerWoman Photography but I've still got a lot to learn! :)
