I'm a Rebel T2i
Oh, that's the name of my camera. I love it! The pictures I've taken before today were on the Automatic side ONLY. Even reading the book I couldn't understand it. (No wise-cracks here, ok?) So I went to a local camera shop for a bit of one-on-one.
And I must say, my camera is too smart for me. Whew. I took one lesson. She helped me reset the camera, gave me a few pointers and homework. My teacher knew when my eyes glazed, it was time to stop.
My first assignment was to use the single spot focus (AF), to focus on only one thing and move the camera to widen the view and it keeps the focused spot clear.
As you can see the trees stand out, and the water is unfocused. This smarty-pants camera has a bunch of other focus-hocus pocus I've yet to learn. But I'm learning. (I might share more if I get good grades.)
"In the same way that you gave me a mission in the world, I give them a mission in the world." John 17:18 (MS)
Single focus is great for cameras, but may I not get so single-minded I don't notice the big picture around me. Jesus widen my lens.
I was born in cajun country. I now live in Florida with my husband Mike. My daughter Shelly, and Dan her husband, live close. My son David and his wife, Melissa, along with my three grandchildren live in Virginia. I love them all and thank God I have been so blessed.
I wrote tips for Focus on the Family "Teen Phases" magazine and have a short story in the "God Encounters" anthology. I have a story in the book, "Fighting Fear; Winning the War at Home When Your Soldier Leaves for Battle".
I once kissed, danced and swam with dolphins, and falcons have landed on my arm. Love my English Golden Retriever. I'm a sucker for chocolate and salsa.
