ONE FOUR CHALLENGE – Jan15-WK-2

~~~~~

My contribution for

Robyn’s

‘Captivate Me’ 

blog

One-Four-Challenge

During the Christmas break I purchased and began to

READ…yes, read

the instruction book for my camera.

Marvellous what instruction books contain!

I discovered by pushing a button or two I could

severely affect the look of my photo…

no computer software required.

Wow!

I decided our Christmas tree would make the ideal subject.

I turned my back one day and the next thing I knew it was

back in its box packed away until December.

So this urn is going to be this month’s subject.

LO

This shot is in ‘Lo Key’ Mode.

The instruction book states that

Lo Key creates a deep, low-toned image.

Again it is unclear if  this mode does anything

more than underexposing an image.

I have tried these effects on other subjects with better results.

All photos are taken with a

Nikon D7100 shooting in Effects Mode

and letting the camera do the work.

Odd Ball

Week 2

~~~~~

Recently we had a visit from around one hundred cockatoos…corellas to be precise.

corella_3588They proceeded to aerate our front yard…
corella_3589burrowing down as far as their beaks would allow.

corella_3590I have often seen them in large numbers while living on the farm, but have never been this close to them.
