Well, I promised Caroline at Becoming a Stay at Home Mum that I would attempt to join her Creative Challenge linky this week although I have nothing very clever or even child-friendly here! I’m also sure that the whole photography thing is getting a bit old now but I am still enjoying carrying my new camera everywhere with me and just trying stuff out! I am constantly discovering new things to do with it as it seems to have secret advice and instructions cropping up just when you least expect it. Yesterday I discovered ‘Pop Colours’ which auto adjusts colours in your photo to make them ‘pop’ which I love. Here’s my attempt using pop colours:
Here’s an extreme macro shot of my Ruby & Millie compact:
Another attempt at a cheeky angle:
An impromptu portrait:
A candid capture:
And an experiment with shutter speeds:
I still have so much more to learn but in the meantime I’m pretty happy with my camera and having the chance to get creative – it has made me look at the world in a new way just as blogging has enhanced every experience I have or thought that occurs to me (could I blog about this?) the camera is encouraging me to see the potential in every mundane item or moment. Its the moment that the act of visual note-taking or logging subtly transforms into art and its making me very happy right now!
