Taking a break from uploading my very late Batanes posts to share some practice shots taken on the farm today. I’m still trying to get used to my Fuji X2o; I haven’t had a lot of time to play with it since I bought it a few months ago. I was fiddling around with it this afternoon and decided to shoot random things while I was at it.
Good thing many of the plants were in bloom — maybe because the weather’s already turned cooler? — so I had no trouble finding subjects to shoot.
I also decided to test the super macro settings on the X20. Love the bokeh on these!
I’ve been experimenting with shooting and editing in RAW lately. I only used to shoot in JPG with my ancient Canon 300D because it took so long for it to write to my memory card. Now that I’ve tried it, though, I don’t think I’m ever going back to just shooting in JPG. It’s so much easier to post process in RAW.
DoraDog tagged along while I was shooting, so I had company while practicing. I tried to get a few shots of her, but she wasn’t all that comfortable with the camera at first.
But then she started to warm up to the idea of getting a close up…
…and ended up giving my filter a few good licks for luck. 😀
