So far I LOVE it! It was a little overwhelming at first trying to figure out at least a portion of what it can do, what all the buttons and dials are for, and trying to understand how ISO, Aperture and Shutter Speed all work together to make their magic. Therefore, I spent the first 1-2 weeks using auto mode as I assume the camera is much smarter than I am in judging the best settings to use depending on the environment. However, the last few days I really feel like I'm getting the hang of it better and using the manual settings more and more and just practicing when I can with birds on my feeder in the mornings and my faithful dog Jax, willing or not to participate lol. YouTube videos and online blogs have helped immensely too in just getting started.
Here are a few of my beginner pics from this week:
|Jax's cute face|
|My pink lillies|
|Jax watching his daddy mow the lawn|
|My elusive cardinal! So hard to catch him|
|My nephew being silly|
|On his way to lunch...mid-air|
|Done eating and on his way|
Looking forward to getting more practice over the remainder of the summer and gaingin a better understanding of all this baby can do before capturing our baby's firsts!
