For Chanukah I got a new Camera
There's only so long you can look at scrapbook blogs and magazines, and not start to want better pictures for your own scrapbook pages.
As for my old camera, I was tired of having to wonder which buttons would decide to work on a given day. I was not quite ready to delve into the world of DSLR, but I wanted to be able to learn about photography a little bit. This baby, the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS7, has some manual controls, which is good. I still have the most luck with automatic, which is less good, but I'll deal.
Right now I am just trying to be in the habit of taking more pictures, and getting over some camera related shyness. See, stopping in the middle of the street to take pictures of your feet is, well, a little embarrassing.
Aside from my kids, here is what I like to take pictures of the most. Textures and shapes. Which, like I said, makes me wants to stop and photograph some weird stuff. Here is a sampling. Do not judge based on color and light, because I don't really know how to control those things.
Shabbat Shalom, and back to scrap coming up.
