Weekly Photo Challenge – Change
This is what happens here. You wake up and the birds are singing, and it is a sweet song, even with the noisy seagulls harmonising The sun is shining. You get excited, you crack out your spring coat. Then you freeze your backside off on the prom because the sun went behind the clouds. It seems that spring has not officially sprung here as yet.
The reason I have chosen this photograph for this challenge is because I got my first new lens this week. A 70-300 Macro Zoom lens. I have been reading about them and looking a photographs taken with them for months. This is the first photograph I have taken with it. I took it down to the prom and fired off a few practice shots. I can see that I am going to have lots of fun with this.
When I first got my first SLR camera in January of this year I felt as if I suddenly did not have a clue. It was much bigger than me and after being so used to the compact camera learning to use it properly was a big job. I understood about aperture, depth of field, exposure but applying it to how I wanted to apply it with the beast was another story.
Recently I have felt as though my camera and I were finally singing off the same hymn sheet a little more. Maybe that is why I have chosen now to put myself right back there with something else to learn. It is all change again. Learning, mistakes, trial and error and most importantly, fun.
