Nature On The Bikepath

As I awoke from my slumber at 1:00 PM in the afternoon, (yeah…ever since California my sleeping habits have regressed) I noticed it was a pretty nice day out. What better day than to go for a walk and take my new camera for a spin? When I got the camera I read the user’s manual from front to back, not something I do often. I have always been intrigued about the different modes these cameras have.

This particular camera has four different camera modes.  The first is an “easy” mode, which basically doesn’t let you make any of the decisions, and the camera takes the picture for you when it thinks there’s a good shot. Well maybe not that extreme, but it locks everything in to make sure you get a decent picture.

The second is a “normal” picture mode. It lets you customize the different settings and such in case you think you’re a good photographer, but frankly, if you were you’d be using one of the other two settings, so really this one’s useless.

The third setting is called “Sensitive ISO” or something crazy like that. ISO, (I can’t remember what it actually stands for, I’m sure Caitlin can tell me 😛 ) as I understand it, has something to do with light, and letting it in or not. Umm…yeah. It has different settings, such as 400, 800, and 1200. It makes pictures better. I’m told.

The fourth setting is the “Macro” setting, which has a pictograph of a flower. It’s for taking pictures of flowers, and other close up things.

Here are the results of my picture taking adventure, doing my best to use what I learned from the user’s manual!

There are many more photos, and if you want you can check out my picasa thing by clicking on the photos, or clicking here, where you can see the whole album. There are some nice shots in there, including one of a snake, and an otter swimming through the water. And some ducklings! Adorable.
