First Attempts... posted by justramirez January 19, 2009 04:09PM reply | quote

Just got my babies and still trying to figure things out. Most of time I'm having troubles focusing as what I see in the viewfinder isn't exactly what comes out. Oh yeah, I'm also a total noob in photography, so there's still a lot to learn. These photos are a product of trial and error.

Hmmm, I've read that I have to adjust the diopter settings but I don't exactly know how that works. Lols... I'm using a Composer by the way and is in love with the plastic optic.

Welcome to the addiction! Great first shots.
Don't know what camera you have but usually there is a small lever next to the viewfinder to adjust the dioptre. Half press the shutter and move the dioptre lever until the information displayed in the viewfinder is sharp. That should allow you to focus better. Good luck.

Welcome. It looks like you will have a lot of fun with the new babies. It looks like while you are fixing the diopter the bear is happy to hang around.

Welcome to the forum. I enjoyed viewing your first Composer images of the bear. You and your bear will get the hang of focusing in no time!

Hi, I am new to this site also. I have had my G3 for almost a year. What fun it is. Pretty soon you will be able to pick it up and find the "sweet spot" right away. Nice first attempts.

This car was going down the street in front of my house. Thought the colors where artisitic but not something I would drive. Of course the camera had the LB on it..
Kudos Darby

See, snap, then learn .....Bending is an aRt, it's not as much about the blur as one would assume .......

Your bear has seen the light and I like ! Just-a-Vision .

And Darby I would drive that car .. hee .

I like the bear! Dark and creepy, but it fits in the surroundings! Thanks for sharing.
