Summer finally arrived in Germany, and I used yesterday’s sunny weather to take some photos of plants and insects in our garden. Mainly because I wanted to see if the many hints and tips on photographing these things I found on the PhotoNaturalist blog (e.g., this post on how to make a subject stand out more).
And indeed, while I still am far from being a good photographer, I can see a difference compared to maybe half a year ago. I know my camera better, that’s from reading the friggin’ manual, but I also know much better what the settings actually DO, what I can achieve with them. I’ve always had a good eye for composing shots, now the other aspects like playing with the exposure etc. are improving.
I’ll put some of the pics in as a gallery to speed up loading of this page, clikc the thumbnails for the larger size.
