.....my new camera! I just love it so far and it's been a lot of fun. I haven't really figured everything out yet, but these were some of the first shots that came out of it. It has so much more than my last camera and it will most likely take me a while to memorize how to access all the different settings and how to use them properly.
Petra is so energetic that most of my photos of her would simply have been brown blurs in the past, but when I saw these I was so pleased. I love how her face is in focus and her body and the ground is blurred. With the Kodak, everything would have been in focus equally and if anything was blurry, it would have been her ever-moving face! Next time I will try the kids and pets setting and see if I can get them even clearer.
I looked out the window last Thursday to see that beautiful orange glare on my neighbors windows so I hurried down to the bay just in time to catch the last moments of the sunset. I got to try out a few of the features like the sunset setting and widescreen. There was also a huge plastic boat shaped sandbox that had washed up to shore, which was strange, but a fun photography prop!
