Camera Corner

Hi, folks

Welcome to ‘Camera Corner’.

I know we already have our ‘Garden Gallery 2013’ thread and it’s great for sharing pictures of our gardens.

However, I (and others) feel there is room for a thread where we may share other stuff, so with this in mind I’m starting this one that will hopefully be more photography orientated.

Perhaps we could post pics of gardens & places we have visited, wildlife, macro (close-ups), sunrises & sunsets, patterns, landscapes……the list is endless.

I’ll start things off with this pic I took earlier in the year of my local bluebell wood:

    If Land slugs were this pretty , i wouldn't mind them as much.



    It's not a mess, it's a nature reserve.
  • Is that a sea slug, fidgetbones? He/she is very handsome.

  • Thanks, folks......perhaps I should have said that the bluebell wood located at Barton-under-Needwood, not far from Burton-on-Trent.

    Sea slugs. aka Nudibranches, due to gills being naked and waving around in the water instead of  being internal. They do a similar job to land slugs, clearing up detritus, and grazing on soft algae. They are hermaphrodite, so he/she.

    Excellent thread David!  I dabbled with photographing fireworks in 2009 and the results can be quite surreal:


     If that one posts properly, I'll post a few more, otherwise I'll edit and retry.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • Love the bluebell wood David  and the butterfly

  • I like those contrasting colours, ann.....really nice.

    I'm no expert by any means, ann. In fact I've recently joined a camera and find that I know nothing really.

    Modern digital cameras are quite complicated until you get the hang of them, although you can always play safe by using them in auto. Learning how to use aperture & shutter priorities and macro & super-macro settings broadens your scope.

    An example is that if you are taking a picture of a waterfall say, if you use ‘auto’ the water will look just as you see it. But if you choose ‘shutter speed priority’ and choose a very slow shutter speed, the water will look milky white…… I will see if I can find an example.

  • great idea david. Great photos already. I must have a look in my files. image

  • This is an example pic for Ann:


    I'll perhaps elaborate another time.

  • i love that david, water is facinating isnt it, im wondering if there is a camera club near me, i shall investigate further its good to keep learning
