Getting My Blur Down

February 12, 2015

I have been experimenting lately, using props for still life. I am trying to use what I have on hand. I like small items, vintage, and just cute things. Participating in Kim Klassen’s Be Still 52, is helping me to make new discoveries about my camera. I have not ever been one to be studious and so I have not studied my user’s manual. It is about time. Penny is a character out of the movie The Toy Story. Somehow this little girl toy ended up with me. I like that she is a cowgirl and so this is what I came up with today. I have not arrived but am making a little progress, but because I like whimsical I thought that these images are cute. I have a few books about Dale Evan’s and Roy, so I included them as I practiced.

    I had a Roy Rogers lunchbox with a Dale Evans thermos. Of course I love the subject matter! The photos are nice, too. I’m just learning how to get that nice blurred background myself. Sometimes it works, and sometimes… well, let’s just say practice is needed!

      I had a lunchbox too minus the thermos.. I regret that I never visited their museum in California.. With practice it will become easy, one of these days…

    I loved the photos and would love to know who this is that is teaching you about blur. I’d like to know more about it too. Who is she and how do I find her instructions, Roberta? Love, N ❤
