How to take a good photo


Today my Beloved and I went to Loseley Park to have lunch, wander the gardens, and take some photos for Disgruntled Bear. It didn't go entirely smoothly.



Oops!

Ah, we've all done that!

Robin S. said...

Oh yeah,no worries, I've filmed all kinds of stuff I didn't know I was filming! Plus, I don't even know how to get to the film after I've...filmed. Because tech is my thing, ya know!

Kate said...

Hahaha! Been there, done that!

fairyhedgehog said...

Simon and Kate, I'm glad it's not just me!

Knowing how super-techie you are, Robin, I'm relieved that it's happened to you too!

Old Kitty said...

My friend took the pic of me that I sent over to Disgruntled Bear. He had to cross a busy road and nearly got himself run over!! All in the name of ART!

:-)

Great to see you in the sunshine!

Take care

Kitty, that sounds dangerous! Do we get to see the photo?

Hee! I'll ditto everyone else; any person in possession a digital camera winds up with one of those sorts of movies eventually.

fairyhedgehog said...

jj, damn! I thought it was unique and I could sell it on ebay. My illusions are shattered.

(I really didn't realise how common it is.)

FH, the art is learning to do it deliberately - rather tricky at first but once the penny drops you'll have no problem repeating it and working out different shapes. :-)

There's never a need for photoshop if your mind is twisted enough...

fairyhedgehog said...

Then I'm sure you never need Photoshop, Richard ;)

Lexi said...

That made me laugh out loud.

Amie McCracken said...

Ha ha ha! You just made my day.

Scarlet Blue said...

Yeah, but film is better than a still.
Sx

Richard N said...

FH, I seldom 'need' it... but sometimes it's fun in it's own right. >:-)

fairyhedgehog said...

Lexi and Amie, I'm glad it made you laugh!

Scarlet, films are better for a lot of things but this time we needed a still.

Richard, I'm sure you can be very naughty with it!

Richard N said...

FH, put a clear, full-face self-portrait in the OL rogues gallery and I'll see what I can do...

For extra fun, post your beloved too >;-)

raine said...

I'm laughing because I've done it too (don't even think I caught the shadows on my first try, lol).
Thanks for the grin. :)

fairyhedgehog said...

Richard, I'm not sure I'm that brave!

raine, glad it made you laugh.

DJ Kirkby said...

Lol. Glad I'm not the only one who does things like that!

fairyhedgehog said...

DJ, it sounds like it's more common than I realised!

How are you with omelettes?

fairyhedgehog said...

Whirl, omelettes are fine as long as they don't get stuck in my prickles.
