To all ye who want to paint with light ...

I should have started this blog many moons ago as I started experiencing the joys of rediscovering the art of photography. But as the saying goes - it's better late, than never!
So, here I am, in the hopes of recording what I learn as I progress from ignorance to enlightenment; about what my eyes can see that my camera can capture; and, what my mind imagines and my camera paints with its capabilities.

Please feel free to add any comments and share your wisdom (tips or tricks) that you have picked up along the way.

And do check out my How-To and Birding pages as well.

Day 255 - Relearning the Alphabet: The Letter "Z"

"Z" for Zoom Blur

This was my second time trying this - the first time was during Fall, when I tried it on a coloured leaf, but the shot was handheld, and therefore not worthy of your attention.  This way of creating an image is also known as Intentional Camera Movement (ICM).

It's absolutely imperative that a tripod be used for this. Click here for detailed instructions on how I did this.

And I need to mention that all these shots are SOOC, except for this one, which I cropped only.
