So the above pictures are my first attempt at figuring out how to find my subject and focus on either the foreground or the background. I used my tulip buds and that pink flowering thing behind it as subjects (lol - can you tell I'm not much of a flower person). Yes I am being a total camera novice about this whole thing.
These two pictures are showing the difference between 18mm (top)
and 55mm (bottom).
The lens is an 18-55mm VR, so this is it's range.
I took both pictures staying in the same spot.
To the left is my accessory kit with tripod, screen protectors, cleaners, a CD for lost pictures, etc.
To the right is the extra two batteries and sweet charger that plugs directly into the wall with NO LONG CABLES, OR plugs into a car to charge. Awesome!!
Finally here is my first person subject Josh. I really think I need to take a class on how to use this camera to it's full potential, but this was day one of picture taking, so I'm not too upset.
So today I am really going to test the camera out. We are guests at a friend's wedding! Three years ago this July is when OTHER friends got their D40 and practiced tons of picture taking at OUR wedding. Lol. It's a thing.
I promise to post some pictures hopefully later of the wedding!!
*hugs and kisses*
