This crocus shot was taken several years ago with a Canon Powershot. I can't remember now, but I must have used the macro setting. I'm sure this one was just good luck, as I still have a lot to learn about macros.
This shot of Queen Anne's Lace was actually taken with my 35mm film camera. I scanned it into digital format. Even with the infinite possibilities of digital, I still like film photography.
When I first learned about the aperture priority setting on my DSLR, this Peace Lily bloom was one of the first shots that turned out nicely.
These red trilliums grow not too far from our house, on a steep and rocky outcropping, under a canopy of big trees, way up in the woods. They've been a challenge for me to photograph, what with the terrain, the light, and the constant breeze. I finally got a decent shot last week. After seeing Donna's gorgeous shot of a white trillium, I experimented with a little editing using the camera software. I was able to improve the color and contrast a bit.
I'm usually a straight-out-of-the-camera girl, preferring to "edit" my photos before I take them, rather than to do it afterwards. However, this challenge has inspired me to delve into the Photoshop thing...we'll see how that goes!
