I am really learning lots by myself just taking photographs of Lego. I was quite sad for my son this morning as we had a tiny bit of snow and he really wanted to play with his Lego City Arctic builds but had to go to school. I knew it would have all melted by the time he got home so promised to take some pictures for him.
Now before you think I am mean having all the fun then let me tell you that my hands got really cold. Actually who I am I kidding I had lots of fun and felt empowered that I figured stuff out for myself.
- Using real snow makes great pictures and is much easier than fake stuff.
- If I do not like what is in my shot then I can use a background.
- I can half press my camera button to focus on my object (Lego) but then completely move the camera so that it is in a different position in the frame before taking the photo (if I don’t do this then the object isn’t focussed and goes all blurry).
- Remembering to use different angles and locations.
- To think outside the box.
- That I can make videos from photos and then edit them. What that means is it is difficult to split a video when it is just videos, but by saving it as a video then I can. Does that make sense?
