I'm having a ball learning how to use my new camera. I love how much crisper the pics are. I even got brave and went into the "cool functions menu" (no that isn't a technical term ;). I got a really good deal on a Canon Powershot SX130. I was able to buy it (along with a few other things) with a very generous Christmas bonus from my boss. I only work 6 hours a week from home and he still gives me a nice bonus at the end of the year. What a guy!
I thought I'd share some random shots I took using some of the functions on my new camera. This first one I thought was so cool. It picks up one color (the chess board) and everything else is black and white. How cool is that? I know, I'm a nerd. You guys have probably had all this stuff figured out long ago, LOL.
This is my kids after eating some refined sugar and red dye ;) Had fun with the "fish eye" function. Yes, my kids really are this pyscho, LOL! Beware of redheads!
This one didn't turn out as crisp as I was hoping, but I wanted to show you how I decorated up this corner by the fireplace. We got an accordion from my uncle and I didn't know where to put it, so I just used it as part of the furniture and stacked some books under the basket vase. At first I thought it looked kind of junky, but it is growing on me.
I experimented with close up pics using my ham and corn chowder as the model. I'll try to post this recipe soon!
I'm super excited about the low lighting function. Now I can photograph my Christmas trees and they'll look better. Yeah! I know boring picture, but I was just experimenting.
Here is that function that brings out one color again. So fun! I can't believe I'm photographing fruit, LOL. Never thought I'd be doing that.
Hopefully my photography will improve with this new camera and you all won't be forced to look at blurry pictures anymore :)
What about you, what was your favorite thing you got for Christmas?
I figured out how to make my blog available to those who want to follow it via email. Just click on the icon at the top of my sidebar to subscribe.
BTW, I was looking over my last post (whole wheat macaroni and cheese recipe) and realized I forgot a major ingredient - milk! I know a lot of you have already printed out the recipe, so don't forget to add 3 cups of milk to it. I've fixed it in the post, but just wanted to let you know in case you were wondering how much milk to use. Sorry about that!
