Screened

I was just playing around with the camera the other day and taking pictures of just about everything. I took one through the screen in the window and I was quite surprised how it turned out.
Have a look for yourself.
Instant texture added to the picture. It made me think what else I could use. I just may have to do some more experimenting.

  1. I've taken pictures through a window screen before too, and the result is just as you say and show. It gives a very interesting image, with a filter that gives a beautiful effect.

  2. That really turned out well. Whenever I try and take a picture of one of our visiting birds, you can barely see it. I guess it might help if I cleaned the window and the screen :)

  4. Tahtimbo I've got lots of pictures taken through the window that didn't come out to well due to fingerprints and dirt on the glass.

  5. Since I take a lot of window pictures I have many with the screen affect - I always liked it...

  7. I like how the flower does not really seem impacted but then you see the texture around it. I will have to play tomorrow.

  10. If you would take a picture through most of our screens, you would have a lot more "texture" to work with.

  11. Grace, most of my through the window shots have smudges from my dirty windows...lol

    beaded tail I'm thinking I have to start holding things in front of my camera to see what other effects I can get

    Nico designs I don't remember for sure but I think I had the camera right up against the screen when I took this one

    earthtoholly before you give me too much credit for clean screens you should take a look at what the glass in the window looks like

    Duni thank you

    fishhawk well I think I got lucky and just found a clean spot on the screen to take the picture from

  12. That did turn out well. I couldn't take pictures through my window because it is so dirty I can barely see through it. That is on my ToDo list of things.
    But I like the way the through the screen worked. Good job.
    Have a great day.

  13. Great idea! But I'm thinking your screens have to be clean and free of cottonwood fuzzies!

  18. Marg washing windows is on my to do list also. My screens are much cleaner than the windows are...lol

    Ollie McKays, thank you very much

    Lin I don't know how clean it is but there isn't any cottonwood fuzzies in it

    Bossy Betty thanks and sorry no Duke today, he asked for the day off :)

    Donna very peaceful Sunday, cool and rainy today but still nice and relaxing

    poetic shutterbug thanks I love the iris with the purple against the white petals

  19. That's so cool! If I tried that all you would see would be screen :)

  20. Very cool - interesting that the flower appears clear but the background is textured.

  21. That is such a gorgeous flower. Did you use manual focus? If not, how did you keep the camera from focusing on the screen?

  22. Audrey you know I've tried it again and I couldn't get it to work...lol

    split rock ranch yes I just wish I knew how i got it to work the first time

    Anne I used my old point and shoot for that picture and I had it on the auto setting. As for how I got it to focus on the flower, I'm not quite sure, pure luck I think.
