On photography

Five Squares

On Saturday lots of things were going on round the house Mr T was busy on the computer in 'my' studio and had CDs spread all over the table so I thought I would do a bit of photography. It was exceedingly dull and cold so even picking a few bits from the garden was enough to chill to the bone. For the photographers out there I got out my 50mm 1:1.8 which is a fixed lens, meaning it does not zoom in and out, but it does allow you to shoot in really low light without a flash. However, the light was so low on Saturday I should have used a tripod as I had to use such a slow shutter speed, but I couldn't be bothered. So these shots are not very sharp, they have a soft focus appearance which comes from f/2.2 and a 1/50 sec shutter speed.  

Finally, here I am in soft focus, with rather a lot of camera shake announcing that I will be organising a give away very shortly as I have now clocked up 100 followers. I have a very busy week coming up, so it might not happen for a few days. However I am well on the way to putting together a couple of packages.
Meanwhile, keep your woolly socks on - the cold hasn't finished with us yet!
