I'd love to have a camera that could read my mind. A camera that would look at things exactly like I do except to make them even more awesome and artisitc, of course. :)
But since that upcoming Canon line probably won't be released in my lifetime, I am settling for the manual modes on my new DSLR. And they're not so bad after all.
Today I practiced changing the focal points on my new camera. In the first photo, I'm focused on the over-hanging leaves.
And in the second photo, I'm focused across the street. :)
It's fun to be in the beginning stage of this fun little hobby. :)
