So once again I am on a learning adventure but this time with a camera - and I'm having a fantastic time ! I'm just going over the various functions of the camera this week but will start really practicing hopefully next week one chapter (in the instruction book) at a time. :) Simple and easy at first so I'm thinking the auto function will be a huge part of simple and easy. lol ! Still I'm anxious to learn more about depth of field the most. :)
I've added just one picture I took just playin' around. The octopus bead is a "Secret Santa" gift I received a few days ago. The glass forum I belong to has a Secret Santa every Christmas and this year I participated. I have been drooling over Joy Munshower's octopus beads for some time. She brought a HUGE smile to my face a few days ago when the package from her arrived. I tore into that package and there it was - (along with a few chocolates and a lovely Christmas card), a fantastic octopus bead ! That bead will go into my faux fish tank as soon as I can find time to do the rearranging. Thank-you once again Joy for helping make my Christmas a little nicer. :)
Anyway, octo bead was just sitting there on a sheet of white paper, I set the camera to close up and just shot. No special lights, no adjusting the lenses, nothing. Just shot. I didn't even edit the colors in my edit program ! I was amazed ! The colors are PERFECT ! I do know of course, this won't happen with bead photo's much. This is a HUGE bead though so I'm guessing that was part of the reason the photo turned out so well. So more fun will follow. :)
I have but one photo of a bead I made this past week. Alas, this little guy is all I could come up with. A doggie with no tail ! lol ! So he'll stay home with me. I do have some flowers in the kiln this morning. Just been busy with other things this week. Sometimes melting glass has to wait.
Thanks much for coming by ! I hope you come back again very soon !
