This will take some getting used to. . .

The new camera arrived yesterday and I loaded the software this afternoon and took a couple of test pictures.

Here is a picture of an autumn arrangement I have in my dining room. A little fuzzy, but not too bad for a first attempt. Allyson! What am I doing wrong?

First of all, turn off the flash, set that arrangement by a window, set the ISO to 100 or less and practice holding the camera steady when you take the picture. Natural light makes the best pictures, although flash is ok when absolutely necessary. The ISO is the "speed", or how much light you need to take the photo. 100 is pretty low for film, but digital cameras can usually handle it very well. It will make a very smooth, as opposed to grainy, photo. Otherwise, your photo is lovely! The arrangement is very very fall!

Thank you for the advice! I'll give it a go. Practicing holding the camera steady will be a challenge. Looking into the viewer at the back of the camera is like looking at a lurching ship in a stormy gale--I practically get sea sick looking at it. But I will endeavour to persevere!

You know, you can look through the viewfinder if you want to, like a regular old camera. That might help.

"Like a regular, old camera"--that sounds like my speed!
