I've had my little Canon PowerShot A520 for about two years now. You'd think I would be familiar with it by now, wouldn't you. It has a lot of features that even reading the manual I don't understand. Billie of Billie's Blog (see sidebar) would probably laugh at me. Or at least roll her eyes. Here's the sort of full moon picture I used to take.
L, who is quite the photographer in his own right, got tired of me complaining that I could not get a good full moon picture. So he grabs the camera, goes push, push, click, click and resets all the exposures and technical stuff like that. Presto! My camera takes night pictures now! And he never even glanced at the manual! Here's my first attempt at the moon on the water in front of my house.
And here's the second. I like that you can actually see the beach and the waves coming in. It was spooky over there in the dark though so I didn't stay long.
So what do you think? Good or should I give it another try?
