This is my camera
I've only had my camera for...um.. since 2006?
As far as electronics go one could argue that it's ready for the museum.
It's been fairly good to me but I know it's capable of more than I know how to do.
I like taking pictures, but I just have not been able to understand about apertures and fstops and isos and the hundreds of other numbers
There's one thing that has given me no end of trouble though.
That is closeups of flowers and the like.
Sometimes i get lucky, most of the time it just refuses to focus the way I want
No matter how many many different things I tried.
I was going through some camera hints in my scrapbooking magazines
and they all said one thing in common:
Know your Manual!
I do not know my manual
I have read it front and back
The English part anyways.
I might as well have read some parts in the French or Spanish sections though
"Play with your camera"
I took it to the park,
got some nice pics
Although I didn't see much difference in the settings when I previewed them
I wanted to catch different images of water
In particular, water droplets
Although as I look at them on my computer, there is a difference.
Not sure why these happen every time I try the faster shutter speed, or what I think is the faster shutter speed:
Anyways, I thought I'd give it another read
and saw something I missed before
Something about the difference between AF, AE and AE/AF
It looked like just the thing
This is how the very first pictures turned out:
Even Monty was impressed (you can see one of the flowers I was trying to get in the background at his chest level)
