Got Mozaique on film! I snuck up on her when she was snoozing. She did wake up but I guess since she was in a daze she couldn't move around too much. lol Notice the slit eyes :)

I took the first one, then zoomed in on her face. I totally love the close up!

They are both 3 megapixels, natural light setting, no clue what the ISO was, forgot to check. lol I am so not a photographer! :)

Weather permitting I will try to get some outdoor shots tomorrow. It's been freezing cold, not to mention grey here, so I have not been motivated to go out.

Just spent some time snapping. :) I attempted to read the manual for the camera and it was total gibberish to me. I think I need to read my amateur photography book first, to understand all about exposure, aperture etc. and then the manual will make sense - hopefully. I fooled around in Paint Shop Pro and cropped the photo to look like this:

I also took some snaps of our cat, Mozaique, but she moves around quite a lot and they were mostly blurry. I need to figure out which would be the best settings for photos of her, she's our number one subject!

Speaking of settings, the apple photos were taken at 3 megapixels, ISO 200 and the natural light photo mode. I'm off to search the net for photography help. I definitely need it!

We got a new digi cam several weeks ago, one I convinced Lucas to buy. I have wanted it forever, it is the Fuji Finepix S5600/5200 and it is a vast improvement on the dinky little thing we got last year.

Well I have hardly used the thing, so I am setting up this blog to encourage me to learn how to use it, I need to practise before we leave for our vacation in less than a month.
