Imperfect Shots

the kids

Last week I tried to get a picture of the kids to make  a cover photo for this year’s Christmas card. Try as I might it was simply really difficult to get all of their attention at the same time.

I didn’t lug my DSLR out and had to make do with my HTC camera phone. The shutter speed is  a tad too slow for my liking and this was the best shot I got that morning when we were were out at the airport for breakfast. I guess I will have to try again this week or just  rely on creative photography using photoshop to make the Christmas card.

Have you done your Christmas card yet?

Enjoying Nature with Macro Shots

pink flowers

Last weekend we brought the kids out to Labrador park.  It has been a few years since we last been to the park and I felt that it was a great place for Monkey boy to try out his new skateboard. I had  the chance to take some photos of the flora at the park while the kids were enjoying themselves.

White flower

I saw a really lovely white flower and couldn’t resist to take a shot  using the Macro function of my DSLR. I’ve yet to figure out how to use the manual functions as yet so I’m still snapping on the presets on the dial.

IXora

Ixora is one of the common plants that we have in Singapore and there were plenty at this park.

White Spider lily

Another common flower in our tropics the Spider Lily

I’m really hoping to be able to get a Macro 100 lens this Christmas. I think that there would be a real difference between using a Macro lens and the Macro functions on the camera.

Do you love snapping Macro shots too?
