Jingle bells Jingle bellssssss... I got a fancy camera on Christmas morning...! Hallelujah!!
I spent the day figuring out how to use it...
Enjoying aperture priority, shutter speed priority and the ability to set the ISO speed!
I think I have figured out the basics... but my freind Meg might be able to help me fine tune things...
In the meantime here are a few of my snaps...
Talking to England on the phone. Nice light huh??
I like this one. Nice and close.
The Christmas Table under the grape vine... now how do I make the background blurry???
Mmmmm Sangria, my specialty drink. I also perfected the art of Egg Nog and Pina Coladas. Anyone want to come over and try one? Check out my shiny silver goblets. I spent two hours polishing them.
I even ironed the tablecloth. And the serviettes. Which were tied up with silver ribbon. We were very posh. (Loved that Jacobs Creek Summer Moscato, mmmm, bubbles...)
Awwww. Hugs for Grandma. I really want to figure out how to blur that darn background!
Nice. This one's better.
Here's a cheeky face worth photographing. This guy stayed in his new Christmas PJ's all day.
I just can't resist a cheeky face. And is that a blurry background I see before me?? Nearly.
Eeek. Macro'd just a bit too much. Mr G is looking a bit rough here. Nice smile tho.
Look at my super zoom macro! A teensy ladybug on our damask tablecloth. The detail!
Ooh and look! I was laying on the outdoor couch and I zoomed right in on the grapevine leaves... in the blurry background?? A Pohutukawa, our New Zealand Christmas Tree... just a little bit arty, aye?
What better way to spend Christmas afternoon than on top of your bunk bed with the neighbours building Lego...??
Or playing with your new Roary the racing car on your last year's parking garage..?
Or applying your Christmas stocking makeup...?
Why practising your photo-taking on your new Christmas camera of course!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas.
