Camera Play

I've owned a Canon 400D for a few years now but have totally forgotten how to use it on any other settings than Auto and 'P' but last weekend a friend reminded me of a few basic settings and things started to come back to me. Only a wee bit though, but here is what I took yesterday. They aren't perfect by any means, but I still really love them.

So yesterday Cara and I were mucking around in the garden, the day was slightly overcast so I thought I would get the camera out and have a wee play. I asked my little darling to sniff some flowers so I could try and get a lovely photo of our precious girl smelling flowers. Well this is what I got:

Yip, that's right, my little darling took a big chuck out of the flower. I know this is out of focus, probably due to me cracking up and choking.

Nom nom

Note petals just poking out

Slide play

And finally just before she is adorable

This won't be my last attempt with the camera set on 'Manual' but I will need to do some revision.

Watch this space!
