Macro Berry

I have been working more often on using my manual setting on my Canon Rebel T1I. You may or may not already know that I've only had it for a couple of months so it's still fairly new to me. I'm enjoying really making the shot my own. One thing that I have learned is that using manual is not easy in a house with odd light while chasing children. I have to change my settings to often! Yikes. So I decided to try something new and capture a shot of a bowl of delicious berries. I have to say that I liked the idea (so did the girls who were sneaking in and trying to eat my prop.)

I'll be honest and tell you that my "macro" which was intended for this post of one single berry just didn't come out right. I liked the reflection in the bowl too much I suppose. It was a delightful addition. I hope you liked my captures today!

Please make sure to take a look at Theme Thursday's A Touch of Spring. Happy Friday!

  20. I'm very impressed by the outcome of the berries! I'm more than delighted that you all like these shots! I really liked them, but I wasn't sure if they were going to come off over exposed, too simple...what not. I'm super happy. Thank you everyone for all of your wonderful comments! It means a lot to me!

  21. I love the reflection of the wicker on the bowl, Very neat! I keep wanting to play around with reflections but I just never make time for it. I am right there with you on taking pictures inside, they always turn out too dark and or noisy.
