I love hydrangeas!  A new one I just got a few weeks ago

Re: A few photos of wynne's world

Thanks Meghan!  I like hydrangeas because they're pretty darned easy to grow!  Plus this one is really pretty...has flowers on it much like the oakleaf type.

I like moody pictures, too - probably because I'm so moody!  wink

Re: A few photos of wynne's world

Thanks Steve!
I have a Canon Rebel (digital), and I LOVE the 50mm lens.  I really need to branch out to other lenses but I'm kinda stuck because I like the images so much.

smile  thanks Johnny - it's the 50 mm lens!  Something to do with depth-of-field (or lack thereof).  I really don't know that much about this camera - it was my son's and when he got a new one, I got the older version.

Here's a link you may be interested in:

http://www.vothphoto.com/spotlight/arti … n-lens.htm

An excerpt: " The 50mm lens is called a "normal" or "standard" lens because the way it renders perspective closely matches that of the human eye. Consequently, images made with a 50mm lens have a natural and uncontrived look. This is the lens that likely would have come with your camera had you bought it 10-15 years ago. Before falling to its current level of disfavor, the 50mm lens had a long and distinguished pedigree. For many years the defining documentary instrument of the 20th century was the small format rangefinder camera (Leica, Contax, Nikon, Canon) with 50mm lens. Some of the world's best-known photographers such as Henri Cartier-Bresson and Ralph Gibson made virtually their entire careers with this combination."

Re: A few photos of wynne's world

In answer to the question of blurred background.
If the lens has an aperture setting on it, it will have a smaller depth of field if the aperture is set to the smallest number; the smallest number represents the widest opening on the aperture and the smallest depth of field; additionally, the wider the field of view on a lens, the greater the depth of field is, before the aperture.
For example, a 28 mm lens is a standard wide angle lens and will have a larger depth of field then a 50 mm lens.
As already stated a 50 mm is considered standard view.
A telephoto lens, like a 135mm or 200mm will have smaller depth of field then a 50mm; this also means that it can be more difficult to get a shot that's in focus- especially if you have my eyes.
Additionally, the wider the angle, the faster the lens.
A fast lens is able to take pictures in lower light, therefore a 28mm wide angle and a 50 mm standard, are able to take pictures in lower light then a 135 mm lens -in most cases.

All of what I just said assumes a 35mm slr camera is being used, I assume there are similarities in digiital slr's but since mine is a piece of junk, I couldn't tell ya.

Oh, btw did I mention I was into photography lol
