I am trying to practice with my new camera but have so much to learn.  I was flipping through some old Victoria Magazines and as I pointed to a lovely page I told my husband "I want to learn to take pictures like these".  It suddenly occurred to me (head light bulb on) that the photographer probably had a $5,000.00 camera.

The colors of fall 
are so vibrant.

I am sure you can tell the aperture photos here.


  1. Not to mention they use a photo shop app and professional lighting!

    But.....if you haven't checked it out yet, definately go to PicMonkey and play with editing - esp the highlight button, that's my favvie.

  2. I always enjoy your pictures, the Beatrix Potter garden makes me lovely.
    Enjoy your new camera, it's all just a learning curve.

  3. You don't need a $5,000 camera. Your photos are always lovely.

  4. Just look at the color of your leaves... still mostly green here, yet there's a few popping up reds and golds. Soon it'll all be bright colors shooting about.

    Great shots.

    warm hugs,

  5. Isn't that funny, I had the same thoughts about taking pictures like Victoria Magazine too. Still we can try with our less than $5000 cameras, but then we are are own stylists too. Smiling! Have fun with the new camera.

  6. Your garden looks really lovely, Bernideen, for this late in the season. I read your comment regarding your brother, and I am so sorry.
    Hugs, Beth

  7. I'll bet you are talking about Toshi Otsuki's photos in the old Victorias, which I treasure. He was simply *brilliant* at capturing the light, from the soft light of a morning's dawn to a golden glow of firelight--I think he saw it in his mind's eye first, and I sure wish I had that eye!

  8. Such a colorful time of the year! Lovely photos.
