Last week I posted a photo that I had taken of a blue Geranium, and I mentioned that this photo was the result of a single shot not the hundreds that I normally have to take to get a photo that I am happy with. After having taken that photo, my camera’s battery ran out, so it really was a one shot wonder!
I decided that my camera was becoming so good (it has to be the camera that is improving at taking photos, not me) that from here on in she deserves personalisation.
This week I wanted to take a photo of some lovely Californian poppies for a different post I am writing, and again the weather was not with me. I had several cloudy days in succession, and then finally a day with some sunny patches, but with strong breezes and fast moving clouds…. I would have to chose my moment.
I saw the sun appear so I rushed outside with my camera and starting taking photos. The sun was too bright, and the poppies kept blowing in the wind. I tried a few manual settings with pretty disastrous results, so I decided to hand the photography skills over to my camera and turned the dial to auto. I tried to focus on the moving flowers, but my camera (who now deserves a name) came up with this photo instead;
Having captured such an amazing photo for me, my camera now needs a name. Has anyone got any good names for cameras?
