Been playing with the camera

I took some shots while waiting for the kids' bus yesterday afternoon

Very clear photos, unretouched

imag1

I'm liking the macro setting

and the no flash setting seems less inclined to blur

Do I need to wash my coffee maker or what? This is embarrassing.

I'm liking the in camera editing too. This time of year the flash is needed inside and given the light wood cabinets, light wood floors, light wood furniture and the yellow living room walls my photos are already inclined to have a yellow hue even without the flash

Unretouched

retouched in camera only

Overall I'm pretty pleased, though it will take me some time to get used to looking through a viewfinder again. I've been looking at a display screen for 6 years. 

Put the camera up to your face and look through the little window? Seriously? People do that?

I also need a cool bag for it. I'd thought one came with the package I got but I read that wrong. WooHoo! bag shopping!!!

Great shots-- what kind of Camera is that?

Actually, I've gotten good at guestimating what's in frame. ;-) I much prefer flash off because it's so easy to reset the white balance in PSE. Great first shots. Isn't it amazing what you can get right out of the camera.

First, what is the deal with the smiley faces? Very cute, but just wondering if there was some reason other than the kids got ahold of the stickers one day :)

You are a very good photographer. I hope you have lots of fun with your new camera!

I like your photos! Cute stickers on your stuff. And I never did get the hang of looking at the camera and not putting the camera up to my eye.
