etsy or for this blog. So, having spent my birthday money on a new camera, I feel it's high time to try and improve my photography skills.
this camera was a bit more than a straight point and shoot with plenty of manual options.
Abi (whose blog and etsy shop are full of gorgeous photos) has just set up a new group on flickr for would-be photographers to take 5 shots of 'ordinary beauty' each week, with the aim of improving their photography. This is all very timely for me, so naturally I've signed up. The aim is to steer clear of the 'auto' setting and play with the different features on the camera. I've also signed up to another group, dedicated to photography taken with the Canon Powershot A720is, with the hope of gleaning some tips specific to my camera.
flickr group. Okay, so I'm not quite there yet, but I've learnt an awful lot about my camera just by setting up these shots this week, and I can only get better. Another thing I'm learning is that 'ordinary beauty' would be a lot easier to find if my house was a little tidier!
I shall be visiting this site a lot more for tips and tutorials and if anyone knows of any other good photography sites, please do let me know - I need all the help I can get!
