I didn’t tell you that I had taken many disappointing photos on my Arizona trip. The composition, the color… they all good to my standard, but the noise were unbearable. Looking at those photos, my first thought was to get a different camera 😉 “This camera and I just don’t get along,” I said to my husband. But my second thought was that even if I’m going to buy a new camera, I still want to fix the problem between this camera and me. It’s war.
I calmed down (from my disappointment) two days later and decided to take a “soft” approach; I figured that my camera and I might need some bonding time. In an effort of getting to know the camera better, I started taking photos in manual mode (first time in my life). Had some surprises, but I began understanding my camera side of story.
Yesterday was a great day. It was a little windy, but 60+ degree! I couldn’t wait to take my camera out for a walk in the park. On our way to the Root River Park, I looked at the gray sky, brown trees, and wondered if any photo would turn out good.
The conclusion? We had a great time; it was a good exercise (both physical and mental); the photos turned out good (I mean much less noise!); and most importantly, I don’t think I will get a new camera soon. 😉
