Okay, so, I think I need to just vent...
Hope it's alright.
Don't know quite what's happening, but - I'm starting to hit a frustration phase with the camera - wanting to be more creative, struggling with light sources, wanting nice images but not knowing how to do that; I have a North-South facing house, no composing-accessible windows facing South where the sun arc is now, and zero windows facing West, the one North facing window is the sliding door opening out to a covered patio, and, you know, *BOO*, *BOO*, *BOO*
; camera wouldn't focus today
- couple of images were just blur and it was a clear sunny day today - this is probably a good argument for a more manual capable camera - there's no way to manually focus with either of my cams.
I know about the partial shutter button press - didn't help hardly at all
; camera, all set, on tripod, would sort of be moving in and out of focus, and not stay focused, hmmmph; completely confusing to me ).
Also, at this point I'm just sort of playing with the aperture and exposure settings, and looking at the monitor to try to guesstimate whether the image is exposed appropriately enough.
Perhaps this is the learning curve and where much patience will be required.
My "Today's Matcha" photos today were luckily in focus, but others just wouldn't.
Any idea what's up with the focus thing?
(I was using the Canon S2IS).
