I love to follow blogs that contain beautiful photography. Sometimes the blog owner may offer suggestions on using the camera or offer a challenge. I like my camera and really like to take pictures. I'm always looking for new ideas. The first suggestion I read was how to use the macro button. This wasn't new to me, I like taking pictures with the macro button. I've taken close-ups of flowers and such, but she mentioned that the camera will focus on what's in the foreground and blur the background. I hadn't tried that so I grabbed my camera and took a couple of shots. See how the flags become the focus and the background blurs.
These are some of my many patriotic Boyd's bear figurines.
I love all things seasonal and really enjoy the 4th of July collection.
This one I just took yesterday. It is not the prettiest fall leaf I have ever seen,
but I like the effect of the sun coming through the leaf and the blurred background.
The pictures below, use the macro button to take close-up pictures.
And then I took another shot, close-up of a wonderful dessert my
daughter-in-law made for the 4th of July.
and another, my first tomato. My only tomato!! A vegetable gardener I am not!!
Like I said, I really like to use my macro button. And, I think for a point and click camera, mine does a pretty good job!
Hope you enjoyed my pictures!
