Hi Guys and Girls, I’m also a keen photographer and would like to contribute as well…maybe you can learn from me too!!
I’m the owner of a SAMSUNG S1060 digital camera. It has a 6.3 – 31.5 zoom capability and a 5x optical zoom feature as well. Some positive aspects of this instrument are its compact size…it’s about the size of a packet of 20 cigarettes and you don’t have to carry bulky and expensive lenses around. It has video capabilities as well and therefore you have everything in one nice package!
It’s not your average “mik en druk” (point and shoot) camera…it has an auto or manual option…as I have mentioned a very nice package!
I want to get as much out of this camera as possible and I have tried out the aperture and shutter-speed options on the manual setting and I was rather pleased with the end results!
Herewith a few photos I have taken from my roof on inauguration day!
First up: A few prop aircrafts…I have almost accomplished the same results as Sprocky did…note the moving props but more importantly note the background…it’s in focus:
Next photo: A few choppers where I have used a high shutter speed. The end result was no moving props with the effect that the aircrafts look stationary up there. The result of the high shutter speed was also a focused background!
Next up: A close-up of a jet. I think I overdid the zooming capability of my camera here with the result that this photo is a little bit out of focus and I have cut off the wings a bit…But still a great pic all in all!
What do you think about my photography…I don’t mind straight answers? Should I use this camera on auto and forget about the manual setting or should I experiment even more with the manual setting? Do you think I should upgrade my camera or do you think I should buy a PhotoShop software package to enhance my pics? Have you learned anything from me and should I contribute more on this thread ?
