I'm creating a challenge for myself - and everyone else out there who wants to join me! Every week on Tuesday, I'm going to post a picture or two that I've taken using a new (to me) setting on my camera. This is a spinoff from Heather's blog and the challenge that Melissa gave her on the weekend. Thanks for sharing a great idea!
On the weekend, Heather and I tried the AV setting on our cameras to adjust the aperture. Our goal was to get pictures with a clear focal point and a blurred background. You know - that cool effect you see on really great photos?! My attempts on Saturday weren't successful but last night I got it to work!! I love how the bleeding hearts look. Hopefully I can repeat it again another time and yes, I'll need to keep the manual - or Heather! - handy so I can reset the camera.
The picture of the lilac bush is just to show you how full it is this year.
Let's see what you can do for "Photography Tuesdays!"
