Pomegranates are in season! I was so excited to see them when I first walked in the grocery store, I've been wanting to buy one so bad. I've had pomegranate juice and a lot of things that are pomegranate flavored, but I've never actually bought the fruit and ate it that way. So this is a photo of my very first pomegranate and the first time I've eaten one. I don't like how they have all those seeds in them, but it didn't taste bad at all. How do you eat a pomegranate? I would like to just be able to drink the pomegranate juice from the fruit instead of having to keep spitting all those seeds out. Any tricks to this?
For this shot, I was trying to get the foreground in focus and the background blurry and keep it from being underexposed at the same time (No flash and indoors with low light). I ended up having to put it on a tripod.
ISO 400, Shutter=1/5, F5 I'm not sure if this was the best settings for this or not, if anyone can give some advice, please comment or send an email.
I received the Mastering Digital SLR Photography book, but I really don't like it. It seems to be geared more toward the professional photographer that is switching from 35mm to DSLR (digital). The photography lingo throughout the book is way over my head. I need to do more searching on a more basic beginners photography book. Any recommendations for Photography books are highly appreciated.
