The little blue bees are still a buzzing. This pic has a little ‘background blur’ added.
TODAY’S ADVENTURE: Learning about the extra bits I have on my camera.
JAM FACT: I don’t always ‘get’ things the first time.
I have been admiring some of the photos of the people I follow on my Instagram account. Their pics somehow have the main pic highlighted and the background blurred.
Some of the photos posted are really amazing.
Mind you I see that some people have really top notch cameras so obviously their photos are going to look way better than mine[professional I think the adjective I need to use here is] but I’m happy to stay with my versatile, little black Sony RX100.
I consulted with my photographic “mentor” and she explained [in detail because I don’t always get it the first time,] the technique used to blur a background photo.
So during the last few days, whilst Perth recorded its hottest Christmas period ever and that statistic included my part of the world too, I took the time to revisit my camera’s features and surprise, surprise; I have a button that allows me to blur a background when taking a pic too!
As the old saying goes … if all else fails, read the manual and reading the manual certainly helped me discover a new thing or two about my camera.
So I am now happily taking photos with the new found camera mode in action.
Hopefully I will manage to capture a pic that will be worthy of a comment or two from my photographer friends on Instagram!
Until next time… none of us are ever too old to learn a new thing or two and that includes this little UNYOUNG JAM.
