My photography skills...

I've got a digital camera around here somewhere that goes through batteries by the half-hour. The myriad of knobs and buttons on the back of the camera, with their little zig-zagged arrows and mountain and sun icons, are a mystery to me. But I have taken a few good pictures on my own, I think purely accidentally! And with the help of the cropping tool on Photoshop, some of them look pretty decent.

I’d like to get a new camera, with a rechargeable battery and a good zoom. It’s hard to get a good, candid photo of the school kids without a strong zoom. You know they pose as soon as they see the camera.

Since I am new to blogging, each entry takes soo long! I struggle trying to get my photos placed, aargh!! If they're not placed in the center, they stick togethether or look all scallywhompus!! My text appears underlined and it won't "go" where I want it!

To all of you old-timers out there, when you were a rookie , did you have the same problems? I feel like a techno dope! Maybe I need to take a class.

I've been doing this for over a year and still have to ask #2 for help. The pics of the kids are so candid, candid=real.
We ought to study up and get some new skills this summer......ahhhhh summer.
