Camera Study

Hot sunny afternoon in St. Louis. I was free. What to do? I headed back to Forest Park to visit the St. Louis Art Museum and try out the new Nikon camera. Can I still call it a hike if I am indoors and I keep stopping to take photos? I did keep moving. Most of the time I didn’t bother to make note of the name of the artwork or the artist. I just let my eye be my guide.

On the way out of the park I found this sculpture by commercial artist Mary Engelbreit, who used to live in Webster Groves, the same community where I lived most of my life.

    Beautiful photos, I hope you had fun with your new camera!

      I did. I’ve never been able to take photos in a museum before, because they do not allow flash photography. This worked.

    Beautiful clarity and color. Did you take this in auto mode? If so, I’m looking in to one of these!

    • Rosemarie June 6, 2013 at 12:18 am #

      This was all auto mode. I’m taking a basics class which comes with the camera tomorrow. Maybe I’ll be a little more adventurous after that.

        Oh, I’m thinking if this is auto mode, it’s wonderful. The Canon I have is not this great in auto.

    Wonderful photos and congrats on the new camera! I was lucky enough to visit the St. Louis Art Museum in 2007. What a grand time I had and it looks like you did too! So inspirational to walk the halls and exhibits, soaking up ages of art through the lens!

      Thanks, Tyler. It is a wonderful museum, and soon they will be opening a brand new wing.

    Very nice photos. Makes me want to go out right now and buy a DSLR. I’ve been resisting upgrading from my megazoom because I’m worried I would get annoyed with having to carry around multiple lenses and stuff, but I’m definitely considering it before my next trip. I’ll be interested in hearing how you make out with it on your trip.

    • Rosemarie June 6, 2013 at 12:39 am #

      Yes, my big concern is dealing with all the adjustments. I did buy a zoom lens too. I might not have time to do all the switching around. The camera store expert advised me to take my point and shoot too, when I want to take a fast photo.

    Great photographs…nice camera. You should get great pictures while on your trip.

    Those are lovely photos, Rosemarie. It’s not easy to take good pics indoors, when there is less natural light – I presume you did not use a flash in the museum? It’ll be much easier outdoors.

    • Rosemarie June 6, 2013 at 11:27 am #

      Thank you. Correct. No flash allowed.

    Loving that butterfly 🙂

    Good clear images for indoors, and I’m sure I spotted a Monet there!

    • Rosemarie June 6, 2013 at 12:34 pm #

      Thank you, and yes, you did. The water lilies canvas.

    amazing photographs!

    Great photos with the new camera of wonderful artifacts and I love the photo looking up the staircases, very modern.

    • Rosemarie June 6, 2013 at 6:09 pm #

      Thank you so much. I had a great time.
