Re: New Photography Thread.

Mo, to use a picture from your blog, right click on it, choose copy link.

Click on picture icon on the top of this box, paste the link in between the two markers. As LL said above.

You copy the link, not the image. Let's see if this works.

Re: New Photography Thread.

You are more advanced than me with this photography lark, LL. Nice landscape picture. Our village church. The sun was going down and the floodlights were on. I put the flash on which picked out the branches on the tree. Close up it looks like a painting on canvas. No filters, no enhancement. https:/...

Re: Ilona's handmade makes. New thread

I love your colours Ilona. I have many pieces of cross stitch, patchwork, etc around the house, but as I said in your photography thread, I am unable to photo and download. I am able to put photo's here because they are stored online on my blog. I copy the file code, click on the picture icon above...

Re: any new hobbies?

I haven't got round to playing with the display on the screen. Such a lot to learn.

Re: New Photography Thread.

I walked across the Humber Bridge yesterday, as I have done many times before. Looking for new angles for an interesting pic. A moody sky helps, so much depends on the position of the sun and clouds. Would have been better if I had managed to get the wheels of a passing lorry the other side of that ...

Re: New Photography Thread.

A dog I used to walk for a friend. Got her to sit among the sugar beet. Sadly gone now. The owner has this picture in a frame.

I am interested in colour, contrasts, and composition.

Re: New Photography Thread.

Now that is a close up. It would easily convert to a piece of textile art. The colours and textures are interesting.

Re: any new hobbies?

No, it's not an SLR, cannot unscrew the lens. It's a Canon SX740 HS. I wanted something pocket size that I can carry in a pouch and get it out at any time. It's slightly bigger and heavier than a normal pocket size but smaller than an SLR. This is a shot I took with an older camera, a Fujifilm fd. O...

Re: any new hobbies?

So, I've opened a new thread. Yes, LL I like buildings, old and new. Unusual buildings. Reflections in water are good. Got to have a focal point. I like to play around with close ups but don't have a special lens for that. I edit with a simple programme already on my computer. Tweak the contrast, cr...

Re: Ilona's handmade makes. New thread

Might as well resurrect this thread, now I know how to add photo's. I have always got some art or craft project on the go. Something I finished last week. The heart is embroidered, with strips of fabric added to frame it. Stretched over an 8 inch canvas, with a piece of fabric stitched onto the back...

Re: any new hobbies?

Ilona, well done! I have Ted's camera, which I haven't a clue how to use. He used to download pictures onto the internet. It is sitting on the shelf and I so wish I could find out how to use it properly. I seem to remember that there are pages and pages of instructions on the internet. My camera ha...

Re: any new hobbies?

I bought a new camera, a Canon with an exceptionally good zoom. I am now looking for interesting subjects to photograph. It's making me look at my surroundings more closely. As I walk a lot I am finding trees that make good photographs. It's good for making videos as well. I can zoom in as I walk ar...
