I’ve finally been remembering to take my camera in the van whenever I head out, whether it is to work or whatever. It has definitely helped with reminding me to take more pictures, but there are many times that I am completely unhappy with the results. I guess I am becoming more critical of my pics and more dissatisfied with the level of amateur I am. Then, there is my camera.
I actually love my camera. Its not a top of the line camera but it takes some great shots. Considering I am extremely amateur at this, its probably the right camera for me to have, other than I have no idea how to work many of its features. I have to admit, though, I really wish I could just look at something then do something like touch my nose or pull gently on my earlobe and a photo would be taken that I could then upload from my brain. Where’s the technology for that?! Am I alone in this desire?
Anyway, lately, I have noticed that many of my pictures are blurring. 😦 I’ve been trying different settings and options to try to figure them out but find myself trying to go back to what the settings originally were and am getting lost. Yes, I do understand this sounds like I just need to bite the bullet and take some sort of class that will teach me my camera better. Have I mentioned I’m stubborn? And broke?
I’m a pretty smart person and most everything I do know how to do I have mostly taught myself or learned through life experience. I feel like learning this camera should be the same, despite the fact that I am experiencing different results. What is the first solution I come up with? I need a better camera.
I know that’s not the answer. The problem is not the camera but the user (me). Knowing all this does not stop me from hopping on the internet and looking at all of the amazing cameras I can’t afford and long for one. Apparently this ‘user’ is experiencing more than one issue with delusion…lol.
One thing that has come about with making sure I have the camera in the van whenever I am is that I am taking pictures while driving (Sorry, Mom. Please try not to worry.) I took some yesterday evening while driving home from painting curbs that I’ll be posting over on The Lens of My Camera. That is, if any of them are not blurry.
So, how am I going to solve this ‘dilemma’? Well, keep taking pictures, keep trying to figure out the variety of settings on my camera, and search for an affordable class that can help me better navigate said settings. Have I also mentioned I’m impatient sometimes?
