I think I am going to give these little guys a rest for a few days. Thought I would share a few of the shots I have of them. Sort of a different light.

VP, good stuff. A few questions... what ISO are you shooting at? and what post processing software are you using? Do you ever choose the "maximize for web" feature?

Thanks guys,for looking and the comments on these.



Buzzsaw.......These were all between 200-400 ISO and F 8-10 Shutter speed varied from 1/200--1/800. Due to exposure compensation. The last one...just flatunderexposed to begin with but decided I liked it,so tweaked just a little.

Usually most of my shots are taken at ISO 400 or less...but as with you, prefer low ISO and smaller aperature if I am around in good light. Due to seldom using a tripod and not using a lens with IS, I mostly try for speed to reduce camera shake. Part of that ischanging exposure to help, depending on light and background.

Software is Digital Photo Pro...supplied with 30D.. I have PS CS latest version on computer but not used yet. OH....and no maximize for web used.

Got more tips?:-)

yes, get a tripod and if your as anal as me... get a cable release. :-) Your settings are what I choose ... ISO 200-400 and I run F7.1 to F11 depending on light and the DOF I'm trying to get. You've been doing a really good job, I think for you to go up a notch a Tripod will definitely help and photoshop CS is powerful... I'd recommend a Scott Kelby Photoshop book (Google that) it is so helpful and answers any and all questions regarding post processing. :-)
