I’M CURLED UP HERE
with my camera, and at last, finally, the Instruction Manual. “When all else fails,” they tell us, “Consult the blasted Manual!”
MY ELDERLY OLYMPUS
takes better photos but has started getting attacks of hiccups. Sometimes. So The Spouse bought me the lovely Canon. Eek. Without mincing words, my first camera was a Brownie 127 point and click … all I ever had to worry about was whether there as (a) enough light, and (b) composition. We’ve progressed since then, especially the dark arts of photography.
If progress can be measured in thickness of Instruction Books we’ve come a very long way—the first commercially viable Boeing 747 Pilot’s Handling Notes were probably a fraction of my Camera Handling notes. Read and weep …
I’m lucky, I’ve always learned by ‘see and do’. So I’ll do and we’ll see … in the meantime here’s today’s thought on ‘Layers’—
—layers of sky, layers of clouds, layers of colours, layers of lighting … all in the one tiny package and for free. Enjoy~!
back to that blasted book. Don’t wait up, I may be quite some time yet …
