I got a new camera and I’m in love. It’s an early birthday present and I took the plunge into the world of DSLR cameras. I just could. not. deal with the limitations of my point and shoot anymore – particularly the delay it has when taking a picture. That makes for lots of crappy pics of the kids. I have a lot to learn about this new way of taking pictures but I’m actually reading the manual and it’s been really helpful.
I know the blog has been a little picture heavy lately. I’m sorry about that but, you guys, guess what I discovered today? My camera will shoot in black and white! (Ok, technically it’s “monochrome” but for this non-purist, same difference.)
I know I have a lot to learn about light and how to use it to my advantage, about composing a shot, and about all the various modes and functions available to me now. I’m still giddy about what I’m able to do even now while I’m trying to learn.
