My husband surprised me with a new lens for my camera (this is very bad picture of me ~ long day at school and I was exhausted!). It was very sweet of him and I certainly didn't expect anything like this out of the blue.
It's a 50mm lens that a friend of ours suggested as the next purchase for my new camera. I'm very excited about my new gift but, oh so overwhelmed. I've taken a couple of classes and they have been helpful but, I still feel like I'm in the dark and my pictures reflect it!
When I'm in the class I "get it" but when I go to pick up my camera several days later, my memory is blank, my notes don't seem to make sense and I feel like I'm starting all over. It's very frustrating taking the same picture in different settings trying to find the one that looks the best ~ it also puts a damper on catching the moment. My family has to stay frozen in their poses for minutes (many, many) at a time. They cringe and cry when they see me pull my camera out of the bag and, beg me not to torture them. The dog just lays down and whines. Who can blame them?!
I need more hours in the day to perfect my new interest that is quickly becoming a chore rather than enjoyment.
When I visit other blogs their pictures are beautiful ~ the lighting is just right, colors are clear, food shots look delicious, subjects are happy and, the photographer is delighted to share with others.
Any simple suggestions? Ugh!
Anyone looking for a new camera? I may know of one for sale in
the very near future! ;)
