The Sony DSC-WX350 is a point-and-shoot model but it has some intriguing capabilities. Here's a sampling.
First, three different takes on the Amaryllis flower. The first with the regular lighting, the second with what is called soft focus, high key, and the third in monochrome with high contrast. Quite different effects.
Now we get really wild with posterization, high contrast and pop effects:
Then, just for contrast, this is with what's called a retro effect.
Of course all of these effects can be achieved with photoshop or another photo editing program. But I've never really gone deeply into these so it's fun to be able to do it with a camera setting.
The next is with the partial colour blue (showing only the teapot)...
Here are a few different shots of the same view with different settings. Can you see why I am excited about the creative possibilities?
Now that I have this exciting new toy I can hardly wait to do some experimenting when we get to Mazatlan. We leave Victoria on New Year's Day for Vancouver and fly out the following morning.
