Learning stuff

I spent all evening yesterday messing around with my camera to see if it could do everything a more expensive slr camera can do. Last night I was frustrated, but after hours of research and practice today, I can actually take a fairly decent picture! The goal was to take a picture of a single leaf with a blurry background.


Then tonight I read a bunch of tutorials on different photoshop things. I'm trying to achieve a chocolaty tint that some other photographers I've been stalking are using. We're going to the Wasen this weekend so hopefully I can try out some of my new found skills there...


Oh, and I just discovered a new website for actions (someone on the scrapbooking forum recommended it) and everything has a coffee theme!!! See it here.
