I am by no means a photographer, but after four years of using my Nikon Coolpix, and relying more and more on my IPhone (a relic in itself) whenever the Nikon was failing, I have at long last invested in a new camera. It is still just a point and shoot (Canon Power Shot XS500) but it was on sale and it has much higher, well, I don't know. Pixels? Like I said, I'm not a photographer.
What I do know is that it already takes clearer pictures in the regular light of my apartment without a flash. I still need to read and test all the things it can do, but tonight I was just happy to get the software installed and take some pictures. I think the Garden will look better than ever this year...
|Seriously, Sharkey Gray had never looked so true to color on this blog. Please ignore the untidy sofa and pile of coats and sweaters.|
|A clear shot all the way into the bedroom.|
|Only the bedside lamps were lit. Usually I would have had to turn on the sconces and overhead (ugh-I HATE overhead lighting) light to have enough light for a picture.|
|The Winter Garden. Clear as can be.|
|It took me ten tries to get a shot of the Christmas decorations that were on the dining room sconce. This was just a quick snap.|
|I still need to practice with the macro setting.|
|I am really excited about taking cooking/baking/food pictures again. Ignore the mess.|
|It's been such a pain lately, but now the light in the kitchen (I don't mind overhead light in the kitchen) seems to be plenty to get clear, bright pictures.|
|It seems silly, but I feel inspired again. I know my posting has been lackluster lately, but now I feel like I really want to get going again. If anything, the money spent was worth getting rid of the headaches.|
