Today, I've been playing with the automatic and the manual settings on my new toy.
Jason, on the other hand has been working hard, as illustrated in the next picture.

Anyway, I stumbled on a great little post about taking better interior shots for one's blog. It is from Centsational Girl and it explains how to use your manual setting and to disregard your automatic flash. Very cool and useful post.
I'll never be a gun photographer but I'm always open to all hints and tips about taking better photographs.
It takes me back to when I used to have an old Canon SLR when I studied photojournalism back in the days of the darkroom. Ha! Who knew that digital would make that all obsolete?
Here are my shots from around the house with the new camera:
|Our lovely ceiling rose in the bedroom. We will install another light sometime down the track. Automatic shot.|
|Iittala Festivo candlesticks on our dining table. Manual shot|
|Jason's brother bought us this vase for Christmas. We are using it as a planter. I transplanted a Rheo plant from our yard into a small plastic pot which fits nicely into the vase. Manual shot.|
|This is a very dark corner of the lounge room which I photographed in a manual setting without flash. It is not a perfect shot but the result is not bad.|
