Reflections on Rainbow Creek
Bee on Blue Plate
We have someone new who wants to signal the start of our class today.
This is Kate. What is your Question, Miss Kate?
Grandma Poppy: Can we go to the Poppy Patch? Yes, let's go see what flowers are blooming.
Class, Our Photostudy today is on the colorful spring poppies in the garden today.
I believe we will alo see some bees visiting the flowers.
New photographers are arriving on the scene at a great time in the history of Photography. In the old days, not very many people had cameras. One had to study very hard and become very skilled not only in using the dinosaur cameras, but also in developing film in a dark room.
Today, just about everyone has a camera of some kind. The new digital cameras have simply made it easier for beginners to learn to take decent photos. One can practice all day long and delete the rejects for free.
My interest is in shooting nature photos around Kates Cabin on Rainbow Creek. I am making this book for Kate here on Google Blogger and trying to write a new page everyday.
Kate and I are in the Poppy Patch looking for bees.
You can notice from our study photos here, that I shoot from different angles and in and out of Zoom. I also like bright sunny days.
I hope you will plant flowers in your yard for the bees.
If you have no yard or flowers yet, you can go to your favorite Garden Store where they have flowers outside. Usually bees and butterflies are there also for you shooting pleasure!
Of Course my beautiful poppies came from Marthas Bloomers Garden Store in Navasota, Texas, my favorite store!
Here is the tip of the day for new nature photographers: Pour 3 cups of boiling water over 1 cup of sugar and stir until dissolved.
Take some of the nectar water and put it in a spray bottle. Spray all the open flowers you want to photograph with the sugar water! Bees will come and other insects for you to photograph.
Then just start taking photos from all angles.
Take many photos.
Review your images on a large screen. Delete or keep---it's that easy.
We are keeping a daily journal here at Kates.
This concludes our photostudy today.
King Buzz is Flying in for the Night!
Goodnite King and Goodnite Kate
Goodnite to all of you out there. Happy shooting!
