Camera Fever

I've already remembered/relearned so much from my long lost photography days.  I'm loving my new camera.  I've been so busy I haven't had nearly enough time to play with it yet, but I'm sneaking in a few minutes each day as I brush up on my skills.  It's probably better for my arm to take it slow anyway.

Blog traffic is always lighter on the weekends so I thought I'd bore you with post a few more of my first photos with the 7D.  It's only been a week since I took these, but I already look at them and think about what I would do differently given the same shot again.

Everyone loves an in-focus flower with a blurry background, right?  (By the way the 7D does not have all the pre-set "scenes" like the Rebel and Powershot so photos are composed manually.)

Next comes a photo of the walking path at Laguna Main (as we locals call it).  it was shot with a wide angle lens to give a sense of depth to the pathway.

Someone forgot to tell Southern California it's November.  I felt like I was in Hawaii taking some of these pictures.

I think I could spend hours practicing photography in Laguna.  It's such a scenic little town.

There's nothing better than watching the sun set at the beach.  Beautiful!

I hope you have a great weekend!  I'll be back on Monday.

    These are beautiful. Doesn’t look like it’s taking you long to get your mojo back. Nothing does depth-of-scene like a good wide angle lens. *sigh* I’m saving my pennies.

    Okay.. going to try to comment again since something froze up the first at the first attempt… probably Safari.
    Anyhoo, I wanted to tell you how much I love the pathway shot. I have yet to play with depth on my camera but may be taking a photog. class very soon which should help to speed up my knowledge. Have had my Rebel almost a year and STILL not played with that aspect… DOH!
    Lovely shots!

    BTW how about switching to WordPress? This typing a string of letters hung in cobwebs before you can comment gets REALLY old. WordPress remembers who you have previously okayed and they get through fine. It requires you to approve new commenters, but not so hard since presumably you read them anyway, and it has a great spam filter that throws out the rubbish.
    I have no connection with WordPress. But I really dislike this string of letters thing. They are actually quite difficult to read and I sometimes have to do it two or three times before I get it right.
