Damselfly IIIby adminJune 11, 20072 Comments Damselfly III Originally uploaded by jbwan. Wandering around my garden again with a tripod and a zoom lens, what must the neighbours think? 🙂 2 thoughts on “Damselfly III” Brian White June 12, 2007 at 8:55 pm Reply Nice shot. I could do with picking up a good photography book or going to a class. There’s a massive difference between a professional and amateur shot, but I can’t identify the individual differences.

As for identifying amateur vs. professional: My shot is an amateur one. 🙂 A pro would have far more expensive equipment than I and would have been able to acquire a much closer image with a less distracting depth of field, i.e. the blurry foreground spike and the slightly focussed lily pads would be greater blurred and sole focus would be on the Damselfly that would appear even bigger. However it would still be a chance photo and the pro probably wouldn’t have been able to ask the Damselfly to pose like I did. 🙂 Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
