Creating Better Photos

September 17, 2010

In the past I’ve used a point and shoot digital camera to take pictures. Recently I upgraded to a Canon SLR camera and am attempting to learn how to use it not just on autofocus, but also by taking photos on the manual setting. My daughter has a blog which explains all of this in easy to understand language. Sure beats trying to read the manual and not having a clue as to what I am supposed to be learning. If you have a camera and need a little help and encouragement on how to use it, come on over to http://www.clickitupanotch.com and join in the fun!  You can jump in at any time, lessons are ongoing and they are FREE! The idea this week was to submit a photo using a tip that you learned this week. I changed my focal point and focused on Marley’s eyes. This shot is SOOC (straight out of the camera) even though it looks like I Photoshopped the background out. Marley likes to sneak upstairs and I caught her in one of her favorite spots, at the top of the stairs!

    Yes, I too, recently upgraded to a DSLR and use it mostly on auto. I’d like to try using some of the manual setting but am a bit hestiate to do so. Running over to your daughters blog now. Great photo of Marley.

    This is great! I love how guilty Marley looks :O) You did a great job getting her eyes in focus and with those catchlights! The reason it looks a little photoshopped is because the background is blown out just a little. That is bound to happen because you have Marley properly exposed and she has such a dark coat :O) Keep up the great work! Glad you remembered to take off your lens cap :O)

    I LOVE this shot. What a great capture of one little guilty dog. This looks like it should be one the cover of a greeting card. 🙂
