We went to the Big Chocolate Show on Saturday and I brought my camera with me just in case. I was thinking I could get cute pictures of the girls tasting chocolate and making chocolate lollipops. It was way too crowded. There was no way I could have gotten any sort of distance for a good picture (my 50 mm lens needs to be pretty far from the subject to focus properly). I only got phone pics.
So yesterday, I took my camera when we went shopping. There are such beautiful flowers and leaves right now. But I wasn’t inspired. I just really wanted portraits of the girls. When we got back, M and V went to the roof to read. E stayed inside with her book. I went up.
The succulent’s flowers are opening up into bright pink bursts. The 50mm isn’t ideal for such small flowers, especially with the long focal length (hoping that’s the right terminology). I tried to avoid the bee but sorry. The best image has it in focus.
M told me the clematis was flowering so I gave it some attention too.
And then, one of my favorite subjects was being cooperative.
I wish E had come up though. The living room only gets morning light and I’m never happy with afternoon pictures there. I didn’t even try. Does anyone have any tips on photography in less than ideal light?
