View Full Version : first time out with digicam
05-31-2003, 06:43 PM
I took these first time out with my digicam Thursdays, no filters used, i literally just sat down and "shot" it. I must have been lucky because i had no idea what i was doing :p
I have no idea how these message board here work so bear with me, until i learn the ropes ;)

Found these in , the garden, weed, but still nice looking, unfortunately the sun "burned" out the color and i was unsure how to set the white balance setting at that point...
that covers it for now from me :)

Welcome to the darkroom! I enjoyed all of your flowers very much! You can post multiple photos in the same thread by using the uploader button at the top right of your screen.
I look forward to seeing more. Looks like you are a natural with your digi camera! What type of camera are you using??

i knew there had to be a trick for that multiple photos in one post style - smile - nonwizard strikes again! haha :cat:
I use a Nikon coolpix 995 digital camera. have a few filters but i have not used them yet - but i'll get to that... eventually... LOL:)

Lovely flower shots and good crops. It looks like you are getting to know your camera very well. Some of us here have just recently gotten the Nikon Coolpix 4500 and are showing off our pictures. What fun.
Welcome to the Darkroom. You'll love it here.

All your flower photos are wonderful, but my favorite is the chrysanthemum--wonderful color and texture along with the abstract quality. Well done.

thank you so much guys... ack its gonna be an entire 14 days due to work, before i can go out and play with the camera again ... ack.. oh well i just look really forward to that....
oh quick question, i tried to adjust the ISO according to the instruction booklet, but for the life of me i cant get it to work! Anyone know if there's a secret trick? LOL!
We have been promised major thunderstorms here middle this week and work or no work if we do get that kinda weather id like to be able to adjust the ISO and shutter speed for that event.. anyone got any tips? it seem to be "stuck" on ISO.... oh and can i adjust the shutter speed at all? What about the debt, can i adjust that too? sorry for all the prolly obvious questions here but... I've always wanted to photo thunderstorms, and with this new camera it looks like i could be able to do it. I know the ISO goes up to 800 on 995.. but when the book instruction don't work.. errrrr (I'm prolly doing something wrong i bet LOL!!!)
actually i didn't crop these .. i loaded them into the PC and just resized them :)

Welcome to WC! Can't help with your questions as I don't have a Nikon. However, I love your photos. My favourite is the White Flowers (Solomons Seal). I photographed mine recently but it was nowhere near as goos as that shot. Well done!

some days you just gotta play a little, all work and no fun.. ... how is it the saying goes...? LOL
well i used a waser duster and got a bit too carried away but here it goes anyway :) Not as good as the first ones, but ya cant be lucky every time i guess LOL!!!

Welcome to the Darkroom, Winther. These are some wonderful photos as an introduction. As Cathy said, you can insert multiple pictures into a post by using the Uploader button then it's simply a matter of copy and paste and repeat the procedure for subsequent photos before submiting the new thread. If you have any problem please feel free to PM me and I'll send you detailed instructions.
Once again, super photos.

After 2 mugs of coffee this morning i realised that it wasnt me who did a mistake in trying setting the ISO on the camera, hehe! There is a mistake in the instruction booklet! (what can i say im sorta a perfectionist when it comes to instruction booklets, why they there if theyre not correctly made (soooooooooooooo kidding here - *whipes tears from eyes from laughter*)...
anyway i finally found out how it work.. well sorta more or less... at least i also managed to take some sweet pictures of my niece this morning - weee :clap: first time i have been able to do that:cat: Im very happy about how they turned out considering shes very shy and hard to photo :)
ok ive been babbling enough.. had enough fun... time to go back to work.. ack! duty calls :)
I did crop this first one a little, there was a ugly white chair just outside the photo:)

First time out, eh? ;)
Looks to me like you're going to LOVE that digi cam as much as WE like the results!
Thanks for sharing your wonderful photos. And WELCOME to the Darkroom!
:clap: :clap: :clap:
(And, that's one beautiful child you managed to catch, too! )
