Are you in MI too, vaccinium? I'm the troll that lives under the bridge,lol
No. I'm actually in the Pacific Northwest. About the same latitude, though.

Thanks. We have not left winter/spring yet so I imagine that is why.

Just IR. Then BW conversion in PS due to the red cast to the photo.

These are from a weekend trip a few weeks ago. Is it terribly obvious that my specialty/preference for photography lies with floral closeups?

Great photos, Sam! I totally understand how much you enjoy taking photos of flowers, as the photos I attach to my photo articles suggest.

Mushrooms are great too. Many are not as colorful, but wind doesn't affect them in the slightest.

I was actually thinking of when you said that in one of the meetings when I was shooting a few mushrooms, lol. I didn't think they came out that great, so I didn't post them anywhere though.

A pic of a hen (Hen and Chicks-Sempervivum tectorum) that have finally took after our move from Colorado. In 30 some odd years of having them they have only bloomed five times. This year we have five of them that are blooming.

I've put up my Wanton Wednesday photo for a week! It technically shows a slice of my nipple, so I'll link to it rather than posting it here if that's all right (link goes to my tumblr)

Beautiful pictures! I, too, like taking close up pictures of flowers. I'll see if I can figure out how to make them small enough to post on this thread. Is there some formatting I can add to re-size the pictures just for this kind of post? I know how to do that in HTML, but this forum doesn't use standard HTML.

Fantastic! It makes a very common plant look almost otherworldly.

It depends on what size the image was when you uploaded it. I know that with imageshack you can select what size to upload it as and it'll resize the image for you, otherwise you can change the size in a program like Paint or Paint.net, save it, then upload it already sized.

@ Ivy Wilde: The forum resizes posts to a degree. Enormous photos get downsized, but you have no control over what the size is. Otherwise, you need to resize in the photo-processing software of your choice.

@dwtim: Great photo. My hens and chicks have never bloomed (had them for 6 years), so it's nice to see some in bloom.

@Dusk: Lovely photo, and a great angle.

Okay, I was hoping to avoid having to re-size all the pictures I wanted to post, but oh well...

What width do you recommend for using on this forum? 400 pixels? 500? 600?
06/29/2011
Ivy Wilde Ivy Wilde
Testing the pic that I uploaded onto tumblr. I think it has been re-sized to 500; whether 500 wide or 500 tall I don't know.

Looks like it worked. Woo hoo!

This is one of my favorite pictures. I took it last spring, when we actually had rain and therefore flowers to photograph. I took it immediately following a gentle rain shower.

I have a sort of fancy camera(actually it's my husband's camera) that I really don't know how to work. I remember that I had to set the little dial to the action shot icon because the wind was still blowing like crazy and the flowers were dancing around and refusing to pose properly for me. I have lots and lots of blurry and almost out of frame pictures and this one nice clean shot.

Normally, when I'm taking pictures of flowers I have it set on the little flower icon for close up pictures. But the camera was refusing to take the pictures at all on that setting, so I changed it to the action setting.

Maybe if I hang around here long enough, I'll actually learn enough to properly use my camera. It's a Canon Eos Rebel XT if anyone has any specific recommendations.

I more recently had trouble getting the camera to take pictures of raindrops at night. Central Texas is in the worst drought in its recorded history. So when it started raining last week after the Eden Photography club meeting, I dug out the camera and ran outside to try and get pictures of the rain. I was hoping that the flash would reflect off of the raindrops and create an interesting picture.

But the @#$%* camera simply refused to take any pictures at all. I guess because it was too dark and there wasn't anything for it to focus on. I kept turning the little dial that changes the pre-programmed settings, but nothing seemed to work. I just kept pressing and holding down the button hoping that it would take a picture. Finally, a bright lightning strike lit up things enough for the camera to decide it could take a picture. The lightning had faded by the time the camera actually flashed and clicked so all you can see is the reflection of the flash on the raindrops. Which is what I was trying to get anyway.

I kept pressing and holding the button and hoping for another lightning strike and I did manage to get a few more pictures. (I have no idea what the little dial was set on at this point.) They're not very pretty just to look at. But since I had to work so hard to get them, I am sort of proud of them.

I'm giving you the links to big high resolution pics, because in smaller sizes, you really can't see anything in them at all.

Hello Eden photographers! I'm new to this forum, but I love taking pictures with my Canon EOS Rebel XT. Here are two I took on a mid-morning walk yesterday.

Thanks Dwtim, Sam, and Vaccinium,

Once again, the Moon picture was one of my husband's shots. I just asked him to share his pic over here. I find the image rather fascinating - the crystal glitters look so real!
