it’s been almost half-a-year since we got hold of our dslr. never the bookish type, we just gave our d40 manual a quick run through. we then treated photography more like a trial and error, learn-on-the-fly thing for us thereby, making every technique learned a eureka moment. 🙂 after a few thousand clicks, we’ve experienced the high of producing a winner and the low of missing a shot. for each shutter click, whatever the resulting photo may be, photography has been a worthwhile experience… and will continue to be.
this passion and enthusiasm for photography of ours has influenced a few of our friends… resulting in their respective dslr purchases. 😀 immediately after, it was email exchanges of questions and answers. soon we realized that it would be better if we form our very own mini-forum.
a few posts back, we blogged about this mini-photography forum. since that particular blog post showcased shots from members of the forum except ours, friends and readers reacted by demanding for our own shots. so here are a few shots that we have shared in our usapang dslr mini-forum. most of these shots were taken within a one month window… and almost all were taken just outside our house. 😀
(note: these are highly compressed images. for better details, click here and zoom in to see the higher resolution photos.)
my first attempts at panning, a photography technique, and was quite content with the results. i had to cut my panning exercise short though as the guys were giving me weird looks as i click away (as evident by the last photo above. 😀).
rain usually spoil photo sessions but once the rain stops, go out and shoot… and you’ll see that foliage + rain drops do make a great combination. 🙂
one weekend, we tried this photo exercise where we walked around our neighborhood…
…then went back home at shot more just outside our house…
…feeling a bit tired, we went back inside and had a few of these. 😀
these are some of our humble contributions to our mini-forum. definitely more will be shared as we continue to learn more about photography. 🙂
