Ready for my close-up...

I started playing with my new camera this weekend- finally.

Beads and baubles



I've learned a couple of things so far-
1- I can get in there and get the details.
2- I need to dust.

And I haven't even read the manual yet!

And by the way- BellaMomma gave me the bracelet for Christmas. And the necklaces are vintage costume from here and there. And the camera is a Canon PowerShot A1100 IS.

I LOVE it.

Great pictures! Way to go! What I have learned is, the closer I take the pictures... the more dust there is:) I can't tell you how many times I have had to crop out dust! Keep learning and you can teach us!

My daughter keeps telling me I need to get a new camera - but I HATE learning new things. I just want to pick it up and instantly understand it all. Great shots...and I don't see dust!

You have a very nice camera. You should be able to really make great pictures with it. I just have a digital, but love it and getting better with it. It does pay to read the manual.
