What have I been up to lately? Well, I dropped my camera for a start.

I ended up taking it into the camera shop convinced that the shutter had broken because my photos were coming out a bit blurry. The Camera Guy (TCG) was amazing and did some white magic with the settings and basically told me the shutter speed was set too fast and that my camera was working fine and that it’s the, ahem, operator that could be causing the blurriness.

I had little idea what he was talking about regarding the settings but managed to get the message loud and clear that I have fairly inadequate knowledge when it comes to the inner workings of my camera. I mean, it’s amazing I’ve got this far with it really. Thank goodness Oscar stays perfectly still for long periods of time is all I can say.

TCG mentioned that they have information sessions running once a month so I’m pretty keen to go along. I’m thinking at the very least I may get more material for my blog since I tend to come in to contact with quirky people or strange situations. My friend also sent me a link to where she studied a photography course online so I think I’m going to go for it. I mean, while I’m on maternity leave I may as well.

I suppose I could just read the manual but where’s the fun in that?

Until next time,


P.S I also realise that apples have absolutely nothing at all to do with post but it’s the only picture I could find that was in focus. Enjoy!
