Lots of pictures here!!
... just a short post with some pictures from last week's Mold Food Festival. I mentioned earlier this month that I've joined the Mold Camera Club along with Jonathan and Kathryn - a family membership! Well, the Club was asked to take the photos at the recent Food Fest - and it was my first opportunity to play with my lovely new digital SLR - a Canon 550D.
I had a great time - taking lots of photos - and what was really nice was the ability to take photos without having to use the flash. As I'm still very much in the learning phase I decided to stick to automatic focus/shutter speed - ie the camera does it for me - all I do is pick the subject and press the button.
And this was my first lesson - auto focus is a wonderful thing - when it works. But it doesn't always focus on what I thought it was focusing on! Sometimes, the auto focus picked a spot just in front or behind the subject I wanted. Still, I'll get that sorted in due course. The technical details can be learnt - the ability to see a good picture is a lot harder! So here are a few from the Festival!
These were delicious!
Ah!! An English summer drink!
She was so sweet - and I love the expression on her face!
Jean Christophe Novelli - an extremely popular visitor - the tent was packed!
Love the rainbow effect with these bottles - they tasted good too!
An alien life form - no, just an unusual cauliflower - Romanesco!
Wow - that's bright!
It was a fabulous day out - and I learnt a lot about my new camera and about finding the right picture. Still have shed loads to learn though - what fun :)
