Summer is presenting itself here in Michigan! The flowers in my yard are finally starting to bloom and fill out a bit. During my daily walks I’ve noticed that flowers in my neighbors yards seem to be a week or two ahead of my own. For instance, when the tulips are blooming in most yards, mine are just starting to form buds….I’m not sure why this is…perhaps I planted them deeper than was necessary?
In any case I was enjoying the vibrant colors when I decided I should break out the DSLR camera & brush up on the features of the camera and practice taking photos. I would love to take a class and truly learn what the settings do and when to use them….for the most part I just choose a preset, point, shoot & hope for the best! I tried to read the manual once but after a few minutes the words just became a jumbled mess in my mind. Maybe I’ll try watching some YouTube videos for some pointers.
Here are some photos I’ve taken recently in my yard. I did take off the auto-focus and used the manual focus.
