Just Messing Around

We’re all in contact with digital technology. It can be more than difficult to learn the full capabilities of the tools we use every day. I bought a Sony 3N Digital SLR camera almost three years ago. I have taken thousands of pictures, not knowing how to use it. Every once in a while, I got lucky. I have a zillion excuses for not taking a class, but I’ll spare you my long list.

With so many disappointing results, I turned to my iPhone for picture-taking.

Something wasn’t right.

I stopped by Mike’s Camera in Boulder. The man behind the counter shrugged. “It’s a great camera,” he said.

I signed up for a class.

*mind blown*

I messed around with the settings and took some pictures in my yard. Here are some of the results:

I cropped the last photo which was already in zoom. Suck it, iPhone!

It's a duck on a pond

I regret not taking the class sooner, but I’m a coffee cup half-full kinda girl.

It made me wonder what else I don’t know. Probably more than I think. Ask anyone. And yes, you will see more photos on the Wild Ride.

Do you like to take classes? Are you into photography? Do you like ducks or would you like to creep up behind that drake and give him a little scare?

  1. Love the pics, Susie. Mathair and I have never really gotten into photography ourselves, but we absolutely love the look of it and nature shots are our faves. I also have a soft spot for black and white photos. Your pictures are already so beautiful I can’t imagine how great they’ll be once you’re waist deep in those classes. 😉
