After speaking to a coworker about my new camera issues, she called up a friend of hers who works at Henry’s and told me that he would be more than happy to look at my camera. After work and eating dinner, I zoomed on over to the photography store to get the scoop on my equipment.
The friend-I’ll call him Ben-was very helpful, patient and knowledgeable. It turns out that I wasn’t using the right shutter speed and other settings for some of my pictures. In Ben-speak: “Your camera is controlling you and not the other way around”. I have been tinkering with it, but sometimes it really is better to have someone show you how to work something.
He said that I should take some pictures and come back to visit him. We’ll go over the photos and see if are still any issues. We talked for awhile at no charge, but Henry’s does offer classes and I will be enrolling in a December workshop.
On another note, last night I went downtown and finally paid for those allergy shots. The “stabbing” should commence late this week or next. Can’t wait…:P (Now it’s your turn Kate!)
Last night I also went out with some of Hubby’s high school friends, one of whom is visiting from Toronto. This group of guys are crazy. And by crazy, I mean hilarious. They just love to poke fun at each other and are usually quite witty about it. I haven’t laughed as much as I did last night in awhile. I seriously thought I was going to collapse at some point. It’s nice that Hubby and his group are still tight knit. Too often people grow apart, but they still seem pretty tight. Perhaps teasing is the glue that holds them together. 😉
