John Mayer's Real Estate Blog: Speechless Sundays - Cape Canaveral Orchids Captured from my HDC-TM90 Vid Cam

Speechless Sundays - Cape Canaveral Orchids Captured from my HDC-TM90 Vid Cam

These still photos were captured from my new Panasonic HDC-TM90 Video Camera at Cape Canaveral's Friday Fest. For only having a 5mp still resolution, I think they turned out pretty well and thought I would share them. This means I might not have to take my much heavier Nikon D90 cave rafting this Oct. :-)

Friday Fest Orchids

It was early evening around 7 pm and the low sun created sculpted shadows on these beautiful orchids.

A snow white, soon to be sleeping beauty. :-)

Hi, John -- some beautiful photographs.  Thanks so much for sharing.  My Dad used to live in Melbourne, so I know the area pretty well and I hope you are enjoying yourself there and having good success.  Happy Sunday!

John- those are absolutley beautiful!  I have the Kodak sport video cam and it takes some nice shots as well, but I think mine as user error on some of the shots.

Hi Eric  - Melbourne is just down the road, although I don't get there that often. Living on the Space Coast is the best!

Thanks Kathy - There's a learning curve with every new toy these days. Have fun with your Kodak!

John,

My Canon video recorder can take stills as well, but I rarely use it like that. The software that comes with it can clip out a frame from a moving video and make it into a still that looks pretty good.

Hi John, Just beautiful. The kiss of the morning sun added more than shadow, it highlighted in simple morphic shapes and the textures as well. Your sense of composition and light application are superb!

Rich - My software offes a capture function like yours so I tried it. I'll go with the Nikon for serious shots but I thought the quality was pretty decent and wasn't expecting it.

Thanks William - Your poetic critique is much appreciated!

Looks like it is early morning or late evening...  The lighting in these pictures make them really pop!

These flowers are exceptionally beautiful! They would make great large prints for living room picture frames! My birthday is in July!

Sussie - All you have to do is download and print them out. Happy Birthday!

Hi Sandy - I'll have to take my Nikon and shoot in that lighting again.
