That's what my camera is capable of however, I mainly shoot in the auto and the "no flash" settings.
To learn more about SLR basics I attended a workshop last weekend.
Now, I've been told about the basics of my camera before by my husband who knows a lot about SLRs and has taken classes for work.
But, I think I needed to learn from someone (like Jen) whose aim was more in line with mine e.g., to make things -- like my Little Wickies -- look pretty and fun.
That's not really my husband's goal when he takes pictures for work.
The workshop set up was ridiculously cute (if you follow Ruby and Danni's blogs this is not a big surprise).
Not my best shot of the day, but these were our lunches, and I had to show you.
The food and goodies were as good as they looked.
I know I ate way too many macarons which were really, really good.
Outside of what the hosts brought for us to take pictures of, the location itself was really beautiful.
The old craftsman house was super cool. I have a penchant for wrap-around porches. If I had one, I would paint its ceiling just like this one.
And, of course the goody bags were fun inside and out.
Among the goodies, I'm loving my new camera straps from iMo and knitty bitty (yes, two - I had decide which one to put on first!)
To more pretty pictures in "M" mode!
