Learning to Use My Camera
Last spring I purchased a sweet little Canon Elph Power Shot camera. I wanted something small and easy to handle with better lens capability than my phone. I took my new Canon on our vacation to Louisiana and was very pleased with my photos.
Sometimes, when I shove my camera in my pocket or into my purse, I switch up the settings on the top. There is an AUTO mode, SPECIAL EFFECTS mode and MOVIE. The Special Effects mode takes 6 rapid shots, using different filters. Ack! This might be a nice feature for some photographers, but I like to do my editing on the computer, not in-camera.

I had the button switched to Special Effects when we were walking down Alameda Street on Sunday afternoon, on our way to lunch. Here are the results:
|"Normal" Mode. I like this stark, white building with orange awnings only on one floor.|
|This one is kinda' cool|
|"Normal" Mode. LAPD Auto Lot|
One of these days, I'll learn about ALL of the features that this little camera offers!
