One of my goals for 2012 is to get better with my photography, and to take it to the next level. I’ve been studying everything I can the last few weeks. Right before Christmas I bought myself a gift, a Nikon D5100 DSLR camera, and I love it! Now I just have to figure out how to use it, hah!
I decided to participate in the Color, Click, Capture photography challenge hosted by East9thStreet, A Helicopter Mom, Nap Time Is My Time and Sunshine and Sippy Cups! Each week the challenge is to find something to photograph in the selected color. The color this week is RED.
Since my food photography is what I want to improve, this week I decided to get up close and personal with a pomegranate. I took a gazzillion shots, but here are some of my favorites.
Most of the shots I’m sharing are up close. I took some from further away, but didn’t like any of them.
Now if I could just remember what settings I used to get some of these shots!
I did play around with the settings quite a bit.
I would love to hear critiques and pointers if anyone has any! Next weeks color is orange if you want to join in the fun!
