SX-50 newbie...
9 months ago

...thought I would share a few of my first bird attempts. I have a lot to learn about how to achieve the best results from this amazing little camera.

I have had the camera for a couple of weeks now but haven't had many opportunities to try it out. The bluebird shots were taken this afternoon in my backyard.

Thanks for looking...

Doug

I think that if THAT shots are just a start, you'll be soon a real master of SX50, because they are very good ! I mostly like the third one, but, repeat, all of them are excellent!

Congratulations and thank you for sharing,

Augustin

Diug,

Welcome to the forum and thanks for sharing the bird series.  I like NO.2 the best because there is no clutter around the bird and the background is so nice and softly OOF.

Ok...one post in and you lose the Newbie title
In reply to Photodug, 9 months ago

You cant shoot this good and call yourself a newbie.

These are beautiful... I normally would choose #2 for the smother background...
But actually with the colors of bird, the complimentary colors of the backgrounds actually make the photos stronger for me.

3 is my fave... very tight on the bird, and spot on!

I really like the seed pods hanging in #4, just adds extra pop in my opinion...

What an beautiful job you have done with your first real outing with this camera.

If this was my first series, I would be dancing the dance of the 'Look at Me, Look at Me'

In reply to Britney Elvis, 9 months ago

What a great little P&S, a bundle of fun... I remember the sheer joy I had when I came home and downloaded the photos on the computer. Very different series from yours but a fun trip down memory lane none the less...

I am really impressed!  And envious!  Very nice.  I wish mine, after 2 months of using, were nearly as good. It is a fun camera, tho.

Excellent shots!  Good for you.  Expect to see a lot more.

Thank you very much Augustin! The shooting conditions were near perfect and the bluebirds gave me many opportunities to get the shots. The camera is amazing! All I did was point and shoot!

I appreciate your kind words!

You are too kind Gus! The shooting conditions were great and the bluebirds flew from tree to tree giving many opportunities to capture them. And the SX50 did all the work, I just pushed the shutter button. I can't wait to get out and learn more about this amazing camera. Maybe tomorrow...

Thank you again Gus!
