PostPosted: Sat Apr 24, 2010 2:18 pm 
Hey Guys

Nice day today and thought i'd get some pics of the bees in my garden even though i only have a kit lens on my 450D. Hope you like them it's my first try at this stuff.

Thanks man!

It is pretty cool that it can focus close and getting close to the bees without them flying off is a job in it's self eh? :lol:

I'm new to all this but i'm going to get the Canon EF-S 55-250mm so i can go to the zoo & park and also want a Macro lens but not sure which one to get and if they are hard to use? so will have to do more research on that.

One things for sure i'm hooked now it's great fun!

Haha have fun with that!

Also, did you pump up the saturation to get that vivid yellow, or did that just come out of the camera as standard?

No that's how all the flower shots come out on a sunny day, i don't have any filters and know the bright sun can make flowers look neon but i had to take the shots while the bees were around. :lol:

They came out ok though for a Noob.
