becky falls

It’s been so long since I had last uploaded a photo. I just don’t have the time anymore, which sad because I really do love taking photos and uploading them for you amazing bloggers out there.  Maybe I will pursue my photography after my accountancy exams  (One next week Friday and also another one right before Christmas). I was planning on going on a little adventure to a national park. Nothing like yellow stone but I sure should be able to get some great pictures wherever it is I plan to go.

 

Today I’m uploading two pictures. Not ones I’ve taken recently, but ones you haven’t seen yet. The picture above was taken when I visited Becky falls in the UK. I really love the long exposure effect on the water. Makes it look nice and smooth and really does enhance the overall picture.

Lets go black and white


Waterfall (b&w + water colour)

A little twist to the waterfall shot taken at becky falls.

Waterfall

 

Becky falls is a great place to go if you’re interested in trying to get a waterfall shot with that silky smooth water look. Beautiful waterfalls but too bad about the admission costs. Well i guess £7.49 is alright to get into such a scenic place…


Panoramic at Haytor


Panoramic Haytor

 

Haytor is one of the most visited locations in Dartmoor. At high altitudes it is blisteringly cold and nearly makes it impossible to hold your camera still, without shaking. Luckily i managed to get a nice panoramic before making a dash back to the warm car.


Driftwood

The Pier


the peer

Once i had given up with trying to get shots of the coast, i decided to check out the pier. It turned out to be quite promising…


New camera, new photos :D


Blue-dropletYesterday I got the Nikon D3200. This is my big step into photography with dslr cameras as before i was using the Fujifilm Finepix S4300 which I cant lie is a brilliant bridge camera. But that just wasn’t enough, for me anyway…

This shot was taken with the Sigma 70 – 300m DG lens which is a great telephoto /macro lens except the fact it struggles to focus in low light. This can be solved by just using manual focus which in droplet photography is used anyway. If you would like a guide to start droplet photography head here to Bopbie’s tutorial: http://bopbiephotos.wordpress.com/2013/01/27/shooting-macro-droplet-photography/ and also checkout his droplet work, they’re incredible!

I’ve never thought of taking droplet shots outside in the sun (its rarely sunny in the UK) but today it was so i tried with great success although, I still need to get a better setup for my droplet shots as the background in my shots always look dull and need touching up in Photoshop. If you have any tips that would help me to gain better shots please comment below 😀 I’m always open to advice. I know Bopbie has some amazing photos which have inspired me to start trying droplet photography, without his wonderful blog these shots wouldn’t have come about so thanks a ton!

First droplet shot

This is my first droplet shot! i know it’s not the best but i’ll keep trying to improve, it doesn’t help having to use auto focus all the while. I was inspired to take droplet shots by Bopie, who has some excellent droplet shots. check out his blog to see his amazing work: http://bopbiephotos.wordpress.com/
