I’m healthiest when I’m writing: it’s cathartic, imaginative, organizational, therapeutic. I just love writing. And lately, I love photography. With two brothers who are professional photographers and a daughter who’s a natural, you’d think it would be easy for me. But it’s not. So I spent the better part of a thirty minute phone call with one of my brothers having him explain the simplest terms like aperture and shutter-speed. Now that I have a basic understanding of this and more (automatic white balance, anyone?), I’m very excited to see great improvements here at Frankly, My Dear…
I certainly think so!
My brother checked out my camera online. I was crazythrilled when he said, “(Almost an expletive!) Mol! You’ve got a great camera!” Coming from a professional, that’s sayin’ something. Now all I need is this:
For this week, I’ll start with reading more of the owner’s manual. Anything I can’t interpret? I’ve got an app for that: I call it the iBrother.
And Frankly, My Dear… that’s all she wrote!

Hold head down (My hubby takes my pics…) I shake or something as mine always come out blurry. We got a tent to take pics now of the cards and it helped A LOT. But still crappy pics. I should take my manual out, but it will tell me to stop shaking..ha ha ha.. Love the photos you got!

Winnie, I have the same problem. My brother suggested a tripod. I’m going to use Dot’s for my next round of photos and see what differences it makes. He also said never use a flash, but use the Automatic White Balance. It obviously made a LOT of difference, and for that I’m thankful.
Great photo work! I still have not played around with shutter speed and aperture. Thanks for the link up! Sorry so late this week : )
