Or trying to.
I love flowers. And I was trying to get that effect, where the thing you’re looking at is in focus, and the background is fuzzy. So this was using the Av (aperture priority) setting on my Canon PowerShot SX110IS.
There were some other shots.
This one almost worked. The colour isn’t quite right, I’ve tried to tweak, but I don’t think I’m doing it right.
What I need to know is whether it’s worth persevering with the camera I have, or whether I should be saving pennies for something better (a bridge maybe? I can’t see that I would manage to carry a DSLR when I’m dealing with two small children) and just enjoying this one as an excellent point and shoot.
Thoughts? Advice? Camera links? (Ideas on where I raise the money?)
