I love my new camera that I received for my birthday recently and after reading all the reviews and talking with my tech savy brother(waving hi- I knew it was perfect for me. I love all my friends SLR cameras and the great pics they take but to be honest that is WAY to BIG a camera for me to lug around. So I wanted something with that capability but in a more compact size- so I ended up getting the Canon G11 and I have been THRILLED with it! It has so many great modes and settings and I am just loving the pictures it takes! BUT I have wondered about learning more.....
So a FUN perk to my FUN job is that each year I have the ability to be "treated" to a fabulous VIP night with other CTMH ladies on the Scattered Hearts Team. I was so EXCITED for this years VIP night because it was a DC Photo Safari at Night- woo-hoo!!!! (thanks TINA) We put our cameras on Manual mode, learned a lot of fun tricks and just sat taking shot after shot. Biggest thing I learned- HAVE FUN and just keep TRYING! It is digital, don't get a good shot, keep on going! Our instructor was awesome- cheers to you Mr. David for handling all of us crazy paper gals- yes we can be a handful! :-) If you live in the area and have been thinking about pushing or testing the waters- GO FOR IT!!! I want to take another class- anyone want to join me?!?
So here are some of my favorite shots and I can proudly say I did not use the Auto button or any of the fancy preset features- it was all Manual baby!!!
