I’m More into Canon as to Photo Color

Tags: , , ,


As a Chinese, I hate to admit the fact that most of us would choose the Japanese brand when buying Digital Camera. Canon or Sony, Sony or Canon…. There seems nonwhere to run. Oh, god, japanese are so good at those electric gadgets that needs precision.

Based on my exprience with Canon and Sony digital camera,  Canon seems to perform better when photo color is the focus and Sony always run ahead with the stylish design and fashion apparence. That’s the general impression.

I like to take shot in my garden and other green area, recording those flowers with name or not, those little grass. Canon often do a better job.  Check My Canon IXUS95 Work in My Vegetable Garden.

Sony certainly got this benifits and markets too, in fact, if you are not the professionist, sometimes, it’s hard to tell which is good, which is bad. Skill matters too.

Either one you chose, investigate more in advance in those BBS, and look at the sample picture other people takes and make your decision. If you are going to buy the expensive camera gadgets like the lens, bring a camera geek with you in case your heavy money is lost in sweet talks by the sales.

My Canon IXUS95 Work in My Vegetable Garden

First, I have to say that, I’m not at all professional at photography, it’s only for fun and interstes that I taken so many shots in my garden yestoday since I bought the new Canon digital camera IXUS 95, I thougt I have to give it a few shots and to test its photo quality.

The best place to do this is in my vegetable garden, where the color is vivid with so many green and other fancy colors. Also, it’s in the sunshine outside, so it’s great for the Macro Lens shooting model. That piece above there is one of my Macro Lens effects picture. Maybe not that perfect, but I’m quite satisfied with it. :) Someday, when I got a really professional camera like Canon 450D, I would do a whole lot better. I just need to do more practice.

A few tips I thought about how to make a better shootings:

Photo composition idea: That’s something based on personal taste and artisitic flavor.

Light and angle: The core of photography. It’s all of the skills talks about.

Others: Welcome to make your suggestions here.

Your Attitude to Garden Insects

Tags: , ,


This snail taken in the garden might not be a tiny creature in a strict sense, compared to ant or something : ) The color of it is quite nice, a perfect fit with its surrounding colors, making it a great photo.

Some girl may feel shocked anytime they see some little insects or strange creatures in the garden, but this one is very lovely and clean, added it’s a good egg, a good insects in the garden, doing the helpful things.

It even could be eatable, in China guangzhou, there must be such a recipe made of snails and said to be nutritious, it sounds a little horrible to eat it, right ? But guangzhou is famous for its food variety, where any food is possible except the plane in the upper air and cars in the down ground.

A little run from the topic just now, lets turn our attention to garden again, do you often find those little creatures in your garden and record them just like me ? Is there any crazy and so strange ones that you have seen ?

In fact, we all use insect killer in our garden, especially in the summer time, but what about the life of these benificial insectss like bees and snails. They can be one of the innocent victims, so there is always different voice about insect killer usatage.

Taking Shot in Your Own Garden

Tags: , , ,


I bet many people like to make a few amazing shots in your own garden in leisure times. Garden offers a terrific background with vivid colors, fresh green and  added with your nice feeling.

I’m not quite professional with shooting and not equipped with those heavy camara gadgets at all, I just use ordinary Cannon Ixus camara. I found it enough for family use if you are not asking for exquisite effects and image.

The microshot function in the camara is commonly used in the garden area. The flowers, the little animal like bees, the leaves….  any little magic piece could be captured with the microshot shooting methods with focus on the primate one but visualizing those background items.

It’s a very happy gathering with your family in the garden to take some pictures with nice smiles. So taking shot in your own garden is also a very intersting recreation to do, to touch with nature’s beauty and magic moments. Every season, garden provides you with different video show, spring with flowers, summer with cool feeling, autum with leaves and winter with tough branches.

You gotta to discover and enjoy…..
