Teddy and Flowers


Teddy & Flowers

I was thrashing around again for something indoors to photograph when I saw some buds, rescued from a bunch of pinks that a friend had bought for me. I’d popped them into a tiny empty marmalade jar and placed them next to a pottery teddy that my late hubby had bought for me years ago. So I thought I’d have a go at being creative.

I quite liked this one that has Teddy in the background, though he is the main subject. I’ve been trying to teach myself more about ‘depth of field’.  For ages I’ve been thinking about buying a new camera  and at last I’m doing something about it!  My daughter is taking me to Park Cameras on tuesday. I’ve been looking into Compact System Cameras [CSC] and they seem to be getting very popular … it’ll come down to whether I can afford one or not I guess.  I can’t get bogged down in too much technical stuff , so I always use auto, however – I’m hoping I will be able to cope with the new challenge of using it manually, but even so – I can always fall back on the auto.

A more distant shot, and below I used a plug-in ,  Virtual Photographer – the effect is called Dreamy.  It’s rather high key so I hope I haven’t overdone things here…..
