I have always taken photos! I have always taken LOTS of photos...... of everything.
It wasn't until recently that I noticed most of my photos were pretty HO-HUM.
Many were not worth sharing.
Lots of photos were blurry.
Hundreds needed to be deleted from my digital camera.
What we see through those lens, has to be what we want others to see, if we are sharing them!
One of my goals for 2012 is to LEARN EVERYTHING I CAN ABOUT THE CAMERA THAT I ALREADY OWN.
Here are some interesting facts about the Canon G11: specs and review
Technology has vastly improved since this purchase....as with cell phones and computers, iPads, cars, TVs. In fact, buying any piece of equipment is almost "outdated" when it leaves the store.
My camera came with a book of instructions that I never bothered to read... (until now). In fact, on the cover of the booklet it says: "Make sure you read this guide before using the camera". Are you laughing yet?
"Store this guide safely so that you can use it in the future"...(no comment).
"Please use this manual along with the PDF manuals included on the CD-ROM"... (what? How hard could this be? You know, turn it on, push a button, done).
March photos will be posted on a daily basis. Join the site! It's easy and fun. You meet other people, and can ask questions. AND...you can learn from each other!
I have a program on my computer called Picasa (I have the Picasa 3 version). It can be downloaded to your computer for FREE. It is a great editing tool. After using it consistently for 2 months, it is difficult to send a photo to someone without "a little bit of" editing.
I am ready to "kick it up a notch" and start seeing what my little camera will actually DO....you know, I'm reading the directions!
ARE YOUR EYES WIDE OPEN? WHAT DO YOU SEE?
