This is Day 3 of my participation in the black-and-white photo challenge.
It’s been an incredible opportunity for me to learn a few things about using my new camera. Bear in mind that the last camera I used had film that had to be taken to store for processing before you could see the pictures. These new digital cameras are great – as soon as you click that shutter, you can view the picture in the little window. And you can immediately delete those that really suck (which in my case is most of them).
Yesterday, I learned how to put my name on the photographs. Today, I learned that my camera has a “reflection” setting which splits the screen and puts the photo on both sides, like this:
The camera has other features I’m playing with, too. The one I don’t like is the “punk” mode, like this (isn’t it awful?):
And now it’s time for my next invitee. Yesterday, I mentioned Marilyn Armstrong (of the blog, Serendipity), whose photographs I have admired for some time, and who is very happy to share her photographic expertise with those of us just starting out. I thought Marilyn had already participated in this challenge, but she hasn’t. Apparently, all those black-and-white photos she’s posted recently are for a different challenge.
So (drum roll), I hereby invite Marilyn Amstrong to join the party, if she’s willing and has the time.
Marilyn, I’m sure you can show us all how to do it best!
PS: Garry’s invited, too. The more the merrier!
