Welcome to Tuesday Turn About #138! I’m so glad you are here and I’m excited to show you my features this week.
Tuesday Turn About #138 Blooms, Baskets & Hearts
Last week we saw so many great posts! We saw all the things from displaying vintage copper to a DIY gold leaf project to installing floating shelves. We even had someone show us how to build a bat house to rid your yard of mosquitoes this summer!
Bloggers are the best and I appreciate all of the hard work that these fun posts represent 🥰
Check out last week’s party to see those amazing posts!
Before we look at the features for this week, let’s get some helpful tips!

Weekly Blogging/Photography Tip
The best thing you can do to improve your images is to learn to use Manual Mode on your DSLR camera. Knowing how to use the manual settings on your camera gives you complete control over the final look of the image.
Knowing what each setting is for is crucial in capturing beautiful images.
- Aperture = the distance that will be in focus from the focus point (examples 1.8, 5.6, 22)
- Shutter Speed = how long the shutter remains open (examples 1/60, 1/200)
- ISO = how sensitive the camera sensor is to light (examples 200, 400, 800)
Each of these settings has a specific job to do in capturing images. We will review them over the coming weeks in Tuesday Turn About so be sure to stop here each week for a new photography tip! You can see last week’s tip HERE.
Let’s talk about ISO. This is the setting that will determine how sensitive the camera sensor is to light. Low numbers like 100 and 200 allow in less light but produce and clear image. High numbers like 640 and 800 allow in more light but produce an image with ‘noise’ making it seem less clear.
Locate the dial or button on your camera that adjusts the ISO and keep the setting as low as possible to reduce the ‘noise’ in the image. This will help your images to be clear and sharp!
