Sad and Happy

I have been having some focus problems with my camera for the last few weeks. At first, I thought it was me - but then after testing and changing lens - saw that something was wrong with my camera. Sent it away to have it repaired. Meanwhile, couldn't imagine having no camera to play with... so broke down and brought myself an early Christmas present (!!) by buying myself the K20. Told myself that if I bought this camera, I had to learn how to shoot manually - no more automatic all the time! I got my camera last Friday, and started already to play with some manual settings...

Here it is with my fisheye lens


And a couple of self-portraits taken in a bathroom!! ;)


I am challenging myself to at least post once a week with some manual shots so I can get some cc from you wonderful peas (and friends). Please remind me if I don't do it!! :)

You are so funny with the bathroom dryer shot! Congrats on the new camera. I CAN shoot in manual, I just choose not to most of the time.

You're going to love Manual! It'll give you so much more control over what you want to capture.
