I know nothing about photography or cameras. I can handle the point and click and zoom–and mostly that is the extent of my photo genius.
The other day I was taking pictures and suddenly the picture went dark. I didn’t touch anything or play with the contrast. It was cloudy outside but by no means dark at 1 in the afternoon yet the pictures came out almost totally black!
Here’s an edited image of the fledgling doves under the picnic table. I had to amp the brightness up (way up!) in a photo editing program just to be able to see anything. [Even with the brightness I can just barely make out the doves dead center–and maybe that’s only because I know what I am looking at.]
So I am a bit irritated about the whole thing. How does a camera just stop taking normal pictures?!
I will be researching new cameras tonight–something that isn’t going to cost me an arm and a leg. There has to be something out there that is easy and takes pretty amazing pictures…even for an inexperienced photographer like me.
