Is there a difference in the pictures you take when you use camera settings other than “auto"? We are about to find out.
Disclaimer: This only applies of course to my non-existent photography skills and my lovely little camera, a Cannon PowerShot SD790 IS Digital Elph. And no, I have no idea what all that means. Thank you for listening.
One of my lovely hibiscus plants out front is blooming. It is spectacular! I took multiple shots of the same bloom with different camera settings. Note too that it was overcast and a little windy.
Okay, sorry, but the best one in my opinion is the first! Auto setting rules lol. I have found this to be true most all of the time. I’ve had my new camera since April now and have gotten to try using some of the other settings in their intended locales…the beach setting on the beach, fireworks setting on the fourth, kids and pets setting on my kids and cats. I haven’t ever found one of the specific settings to give me a better shot than plain old auto. I could very well be doing it all wrong, but that’s just my humble experience. Who are we kidding? I probably am doing it all wrong, but that’s why Canon invented the auto setting, for people like me. :) Thank you Canon.
I am linking this up to A Familiar Path, a wonderful blog with some really good pics by a woman who doesn’t need the auto setting…and she is being kind enough to teach those of us who do how to not do. What? Okay my fish oil pill has not kicked in this morning lol. Anyway, head over to A Familiar Path if you want to see some good pics and learn just how to take them yourself.
