My Life in Pictures

Adventures in amateur photography

Experimenting with my camera

There haven’t been many great photo opportunities lately, so I’ve been experimenting with what I can capture on my camera a bit, as well as with editing photos with GIMP.

It was rainy and there wasn't a lot to photograph, so I decided to see how it would look if I took a photo out my rainy car window. I though the effect was cool, I just wish it was a more interesting subject.


I discovered that the shutter speed in sport mode is indeed quite fast, as it captured this fan running on high without any blur.


This keyboard is in need of a cleaning.


I thought I hadn't succeeded in capturing the steam, until I looked at the photo on a computer.


At least the clouds Wednesday were pretty.


Giraffe bananas!

I'm enjoying playing with the color filters right now, I love the effect.
