I smell Thursday

For smelly Thursday, I had a really hard time not going super literal. The first things that comes to mind when you think of the sense of scent are flowers and food. I went with it because my creative juices are apparently spent tonight.

This is Nate’s boutonniere from the wedding on Saturday. I love orchids and this one is beautiful. It almost looks fake, but it’s not.

Funny story about when I met hubby… I actually didn’t know how to cook. There are many things I had never tasted let alone cooked (including avocado, lobster, mussels, squash, beets the list really goes on and on). Garlic is not something I ever learned to cook with until I met him. He uses it in everything and now I do too. In fact, we usually double the amount in a recipe because we love it so much.

    I am totally addicted to learning anything/everything about cameras now. I blame you! haha. I think macro is my favorite setting. Do you have a macro lens or do you use your kit lens+macro setting? Thanks for putting up with all my questions!

    Ha. Sorry or You’re Welcome 🙂 I used the Macro setting with the kit lens. I think for the middle picture I used my 55-200 lens. The others are with the 18-55 lens.

    I find myself not using Macro as much as I thought I would. Since the flash goes up. Based on what I learned yesterday I might start using Landscape for food pictures.

    Probably 90% of the time, I just use the Auto setting or Auto w/o flash and let the camera do all the work. Sometimes I use Shutter priority or Aperture priority. I’m glad this week’s photo week is causing me to try out all the different options.

    Jen! I took the same picture of the seed on a dogwood tree, mine didn’t turn out that great though… We are always on the same wave length. Nice job!

    Thanks for the insight, Jen! I don’t know squat about taking pictures, so I appreciate your words of wisdom. That checkers set is so cool. Great angle!

    I’m a big fan of the checkers shot as well!
