Oyster Boy, Some Daffodils, and Some More Practice

I’ve been getting lots of photo practice of late and having lots of fun doing it. I am still using my little old Canon Powershot A720IS, but it’s definitely helping me to understand how to take a good photo. I do realize there is still a whole lot to learn. Anyways, just some of the recent photos I have taken that I would like to share.

Oyster Boy and his book
This is Oyster Boy. I'm not sure if I have mentioned this, but he will be the subject of many photos to come. As well as future Tragic Toys I fully intend to collect.

There are a couple of things with that I’m not happy about this photo and I fully intend to fix them up in the near future. Once I took the picture, I was able to pick out a bunch of things I felt needed to be fixed right away. I was told by my teacher (my boyfriend) that this is a good thing. 🙂

Daffodils
Daffodils blooming - Pretty self explanatory.

This photo is one I attempted while walking around downtown. Again, lots of things to fix up, but it IS properly exposed… Not bad for a first attempt at outdoor photography in full sunlight.

My kit as of 31/03/12
Cross Stitch kit - It's getting full.

This is a photo of my now-very-full cross stitch kit as I call it. I have officially run out of room and will need to purchase new storage if I want to buy anything more. This was just kind of a fun shot I took, well, fun for me anyways. I like it because all the colours are nice and rich — a product of being properly exposed so I have been told. I guess that bodes well for my future endeavours in this area 🙂

In other related news, discussion about the purchase of a digital SLR camera for me has been seriously discussed. Jay and I went into Henry’s today and were able to take a good look at a few different options. I have decided at this point that I am going to go with a Nikon. Right now, it is a matter of deciding between a used D90 and a new D3100. Both have their pros and cons, and some “soul-searching” may be required. BUT owning my DSLR may become a reality sooner than I had expected. It’s something for me to really look forward to, considering I am SUPER STRESSED these days!

(I would also like to share – as seen above – I learned to add captions to photos! Holy crap! :D)
