Okay – made it thru the first module videos on how to hold your phone to stabilize and how to set focus and exposure locks.
The assignment is to take at least 10 pictures – but I got pulled away – so still have more to do. But part of my own expectation is to take pictures and post each day again – so going with what I have for now and will catch up! (we will see if reality sets in or not)
I didn’t realize you could lock the focus and exposure on the iPhone camera. I have tapped on it on occasion- but blindly and without really any intention – just dumb luck.
The first module also went over ways to hold the phone to stabilize and make photos sharper. They were good tips- common sense – but the ones that don’t come naturally.
I was enjoying the nice weather on my deck while watching the lesson – so the few shots are limited to planters on the railings. It does make a difference. I will practice more.
My focus point and exposure was on the pink blossom. There is still some pixelation and it seems I am off a little bit.
Another shot could probably benefit from some cropping – not sure yet….
And the third I liked, but there was a distracting leaf that was blurred in the front. I attempted some retouch editing, did a few other edits and came up with this. Better- but still meh….. So onto taking some more photos and practicing.
