Have I mentioned how much I love and adore my new camera? My poor children, really I pity them. They thought their life was full of photographical (I’m sure that’s a word, look it up) torture. They didn’t even know the half of it. Now I have different lenses and a dozen new settings to try out.
Adding to their torment is the fact that Tim is also an avid shutterbug. In fact, truthfully, of the two of us he is the better photographer.
He attributes his steady hand to M-16 marksmanship training.
Um, okay, you got me there, honey.
Here’s a stellar example of our two differing skills, using the night setting on the new camera. Apparently that preset mode uses the flash to capture nearby objects, yet keeps the shutter open long enough to make sense of the darkness. Who knows how those clever camera people do this? Not me, that’s for sure.
Look at that incredible sky! Great shot, Tim!
We’re studying the gospel of John in our Sunday School class — which turns out to be surprisingly relevant to this topic:
The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. John 1:5
And then there’s my shot. In all fairness, let me just say that Tim has been rather blurry for the last several weeks … I’ve been trying to get him to see someone about this problem, but you know how men are about medical care …
I wonder where I can get some of that marksmanship training. Nikon Boot Camp, here I come!
Happy New Year’s Eve!!
