One of these years, I’m going to fully learn the ins and outs of my camera. In the meantime, it’s fun to pour over my pictures and look back and see the cute faces, blurred edges, experiments, and failures, as well as the interesting.
Like this. Red vs. Blue
With taking pictures of my son in the slide at the park, the light infusing through the plastic, the slide turned my son’s face and body different colors.
As you noticed, the blue picture is much blurrier than the red, because of the settings I used. I learned that taking the camera off the “children” setting, with flash off, meant it was more susceptible to blur if you weren’t steady with your hand. However, neither picture is as crisp as I would like it, despite the colors being vibrant and interesting. That means the children’s setting takes into account how fast they move, and is much steadier.
(Yes, I’m still on auto-settings. No, I’m not ready to take the jump into aperture and all those things just yet.)
Ah well, I’ll learn it all sooner or later. In the meantime, it’s just fun experimenting. And visiting the park, don’t ya think?
