In the meantime, here's a picture I took earlier, of the pigface (charming name) in our garden.
Pigface in flower
It's found the perfect sunny spot this year, so it's full of flowers now - even more so than when this picture was taken. I'm actually finding it difficult to take nice images with my new camera. It's only a cheap Canon, but is lacking something the even cheaper Canon camera had before.
There isn't a lot of vibrancy in my colours any more. The images always seems overexposed, like the computer chip on auto-function cannot handle our harsh Australian sunlight.
Rather than race out and buy something else to replace it however, I'm using the opportunity to review my woeful photography skills. Do you have trouble taking good pictures too?
The things I'm reviewing is where I'm standing in regards to the sunlight. Sometimes you can alter the lighting by taking the photograph from another angle. Both the two images I've put up, in my opinion, are dreadfully overexposed. These were taken on the auto-function in the middle of the day.
I'd love to hear any quick tips you may have for taking successful pictures with a digital camera. No heavy techno-talk though please, LOL, because I still don't know what a DSLR camera is. ;)
