As you know I love to try and learn new things.
But as you also know, I am not technical or like to have to practice the new things that I learn.
Well I have been having troubles with my video camera, I think Wayne fixed it though.
But because I was trying different things to rectify this problem on my own, I came to the conclusion that I need better lighting for my videos and my photos.
All of that, brings me to this.
This is Wayne's old "big boy" camera. He bought a bigger "big boy" camera, so gave this one to Heather.
After about a year of Heather not using it, she said it was just being wasted sitting in her room and gave it to me, as Wayne said I should try my hand at photography.
I have only used a point and shoot camera. A compact one that can fit in my purse.
But once I bought the iPhone 4S, I thought my pictures turned out pretty darn good, so I only use my phone for all of my photos.
I brought the manual to the cottage with me, but didn't read it until our drive home.
I did get a bit overwhelmed with all the photos with so many dials and buttons and features.
So Wayne told me to just keep it in Auto mode until I get the hang of it.
I think I will bring this "big boy" up to the cottage with us next weekend and Wayne can give me some pointers…as I am sure with his cast, he won't be able to take any photos of his own.
I know what you are thinking, such a waste of a camera on someone with no knowledge…at least that is what I am thinking.
Now for all of you "Big Boy" camera owners out there, do you shoot in Auto, CA or manual mode.
And do you have any pointers for a non technical newbie ;)
I hope you all had a Creative Day :)
