What camera do you use, Miss Decadent? I've had photo envy since I first came to your blog, but that beautiful bee put me over the edge. It's okay to tell me that it's the photographer and not the camera; maybe that will help reduce my envy.
GorgeousI am deadly allergic to bee'sThe time to bee happy is now
I have had a nice time browsing through your blog. You are such a wonderful photographer! I will surely be back. :-)Amy
That shot is exquisite! What setting is that???
Caution, I have a Nikon D40 - bottom of the line, but it's a little workhorse. I'm no photographer, although I've messed with it for years. With today's SLR's anyone can take a decent photo. MPM, I used a zoom lens and set the focus for a center view and kept following that drat bee. After about ninety shots of it's BEE-hind I got this one. ISO 200 White Balance - sunny Quality - normal Setting - Auto Metering - Matrix Shutterspeed 1/500 Aperture F5 Exposure Mode - Program Exposure 0.0 Focal Length 135mmI've learned in a setting with lots of green the exposure needs to get tweeked up, otherwise the colour browns out. And in this photo, the bee was in shade and the exposure was still too low and needed to be increased afterward on the computer.I try to check all that when taking the pictures but the bees were moving very fast and in and out of shade.
Well I'd say you nailed it;)
Goodness, there's no hope at all for me. None. I'll have to rely on you for the pix.
