Point and Shoot Camera

What do you prefer? A DSLR or a Point and Shoot? There are benefits to both. The Point and Shoots are great for carrying around in your purse or pocket (if you have a small enough one. I have been trying out several of the larger Point and Shoots with the longer zooms. Now I have some extra ones to sell.

This one is the Sony DSC-HX100V with:
* 30x optical zoom
* Full HD 1080/60p fast capture video
* 16.2 MP photos
* CMOS Sensor for low-light performance
* an all-around great small DSLR-like camera

Camera Focus

Having trouble with your camera focusing properly? I was. It seemed that I would focus on one spot and the camera would focus a foot or two in front of and behind the subject. It seems that my current camera, the Canon T1i works backwards from any normal camera so I’ve changed just about every setting I can to make it focus properly.

It focuses when it wants to so as soon as I am able, I will be purchasing a newer camera and hoping it focuses properly. There are three I’m looking at: Canon 7D, Canon T2i and the Sony D850. I’m just not as impressed with the sample photos from the 7D. If you have one of these models, please tell me how you like it.

Fall Colors

As a photographer, my favorite time of year is fall or autumn when the leaves change their colors. This year was exceptionally beautiful. The colors were brighter, more intense and more abundant. I may have gone a little overboard taking photos, but as I walked through the woods – the colors would call to me, so it was necessary to stop and photograph the leaves.

As a result, there are hundreds of photos on my hard drive and I thought it would be nice to share a few with you. There are 12 photos in each package to use as desktop wallpapear on your computer. Right now they are only one size – eventually, there will be a choice of sizes. The first two groups are fall colors. Other seasons and holidays will be coming. The next one will be Christmas scenes, then winter.

If you would like to experience the color of fall year round check out the desktop wallpaper scenes that are available here: See sample below.

Photography, Social Media, Copywriting

Photography is important in a lot of areas. Photos are used in marketing, and in sharing your events with others. A good camera is very important if you want to sell you photos. I’ve gone through several digital cameras in the past few years. Most were DSLR’s, but for some reason, I’m having a lot of trouble with the most recent one. I bought a Canon T1i about a year ago and thought I was getting sharp photos. I also bought it because it was much lighter than the other ones.

Lately, however, it doesn’t seem to be focusing properly. I’ve cleaned the contacts and changed some settings and it’s working better, but today when I went out to take photos of the colorful leaves it didn’t always work right. At one spot, I refocused each time and took about six photos of the same leaf (out of the breeze) and not one of them is focused. It seems that the items it decides not to focus on are the ones I really want. Luckily, the area is very close to the house so I can go out and try again.

Most of the photos turned out pretty sharp despite the breeze. It’s fun trying to get a nice, sharp photo when the subject keeps moving. Usually I need to keep the shutter speed above 200 for a good photo, so I was constantly changing a lot of the settings.

Deciding to try another lens, I think maybe there is an issue with the lens and not the camera as I had first thought. After taking several photos with another lens,┬ámost of the photos turned out really sharp so I’m excited to go out tomorrow or when it’s not raining and try taking more photos of the fall leaves.
