not on automatic II

This week we were to try our Macro setting and our automatic timer. I have to admit, I have always loved the Macro setting, because I love to take photos of flowers, and I did in this case. These roses are from the dozen that my husband bought me for our anniversary. (Remember, I am taking my photos with a Nikon D80.)


Here is my automatic timer photo. My friend Beth and I wandered around our old college campus and had a great time. We found a little brick wall that I could set my camera on and used the automatic timer. You can frame photos with the timer by having someone stand in the field of vision where you want them. In this case, I had Beth sit so I could focus the camera and then I ran in and joined her. I think it turned out well.

Hope you enjoy!

that rose is just beautiful! and a great job on your self-timer shot! i took one of me & my hubby the same way (not the bricks, but the setting him up and running in!)

I didn't post the pics I took with the timer, although I finally figured out how to use it.
I will keep practicing how to look as natural and relaxed as you...

(Ha, your comment under 'leave a comment' cracks me up. Love it.)

Good self-timer photo. I experimented a bit with it, but ended up frustrated with every shot I took! I think it's hard for me to figure out the correct height/angle.

Okay, I have owned a Nikon D80 long enough to know that I officially don't know how to use it. LOL. You make me want to run out and find a rose, asap! What a gorgeous photo. Nice job!

Awesome rose! The color is so vibrant it almost looks fake. I may have to play along next week. I want to learn to use all the settings on my camera better.
