"Oh I'd love a DSLR camera," I said, so Andy bought me one for our wedding anniversary.
"I'll work out how to use it," I said. But I didn't. For the last 6 months I've been using the camera on 'Auto' mode. That's cheating, I know. It's also easy. I kept thinking about turning the dial to 'Manual' but deciding what aperture, shutter speed etc to use seemed beyond me.
"I haven't got time to work it all out," I kept telling myself... until the other day. The other day I turned on the camera, found some children willing to be photographed and started experimenting. I watched a few Youtube videos and skimmed a couple of books, and I think I might actually be getting somewhere. Oh, I know I've still got lots to learn. But I'm beginning to understand how everything works.
Here are a few of my successful photos...

I'd love to have some better photos to share with my blog posts, so I'll keep on experimenting and learning.
Do you have a DSLR camera? Do you have any photography tips for me? Please share!
