The World in Pictures

I just bought a used Olympus E-620 DSLR camera with 2 lenses and I absolutely love it! Problem is I’m still learning how to use it and I know I’m missing out on so many great photographic opportunities.  I’ve been watching some really cool tutorials on YouTube about manual settings and how to stop motion with the use of strobe light (flash) and I just want to get started practicing! Well, I have started practicing and have about a zillion photos of the fish, but that’s not what I really want to photograph.

I love all types of photography but am particularly drawn to macro photography, high speed photography and nature/landscape photography especially sunrises and sunsets. I’m not a morning person so I haven’t yet taken any sunrise photos, but I’ll get some one of these days.

I hope you will indulge me as I post my photographs from time to time as I learn new techniques, or catch a breathtaking sunset, or a cool macro photo of a bee pollinating a flower and as I add to my series of drop-a-let photos, (these can be found on Instagram @angelnails).

This photo was taken with a focal length of 102, f/8, 1/500. What I liked about this, and what drew me to photograph it, is how the dock was sinking into the water and that the boat was on the dock and NOT in the water. I like that I focused on the boat and dock so that the pine tree in front is blurred to show depth of field. I also tried to use the rule of thirds to make it a more interesting shot.

Now, where’s that camera?
