It’s Bloggography challenge time again with me and Manic Mother!
Last week’s tutorial was on aperture, one of my favorite settings to manipulate and play with on my camera. And just in time for this challenge, I got my replacement 50mm f/1.8 lens in the mail last week! Perfect timing! (For those who haven’t heard, I mysteriously LOST my 50mm and finally was able to buy a new one).
Before we get to this week’s challenge, though, I wanted to share one of my favorite entries from our last challenge, on shutter speed. This shot of Marie’s daughter (from Everyday Matters) spinning made me smile:
Here are a few of the shots I captured this week while playing around with different apertures. All of these pictures were taken with my Canon 40D and my 50mm lens, using ISO 640, because it was rainy and overcast outside.
Pinecones from my honeymoon:
1st: f/2.0, 2nd: f/9.0
Rainy bushes in my front yard:
1st: f/1.8, 2nd f/9.0
I love seeing the differences between photos taken with different apertures. I almost always prefer the larger aperture (ie–the smaller number).
We’ll be posting some of our favorite shots from this week’s challenge in two weeks. Will we pick yours?
Don’t forget to grab a button or link back to me or Manic Mother on your post. And we’d love for you to add your picture to the Flickr group as well. You don’t even need a blog to participate – you can just leave the link to your picture in the Flickr group.
The MckLinky will be up for one week, so you have plenty of time to take a picture and link up any time this week!
And now it’s your turn to share. Did you challenge yourself this week?
