Over this past weekend, hubby and I went for a walk with my Samsung Galaxy Camera 2 in my pocket, with my every intention to begin running this camera through its paces. You have NO idea how nice it is to have this LIGHT camera, versus lugging around heavy camera equipment. In all honesty I like how my Canon 50D takes photos better then my Samsung does, but, I still have yet to know all the ins and outs of my new camera. Give me time, and I will be as comfy with my new camera as I am with my Canon.
I had envisioned me taking pictures, with hubby pointing things out for me to photograph. It didn’t quite turn out that way. I attempted to use the Best Camera app on my SG but for some reason my clumsy half frozen fingers couldn’t get the darn thing to work right. The first photo I took and shown here came out Sepia, and don’t even ask me how that happened. It just did. That photo was with the Best Camera app, and the only one at that. The second photo, also taken by me, was on the night setting directly in my SG camera. All other photos as well were taken on the “night” setting on my Samsung camera. Only the first two photographs in this series were taken by me.
Anyways, I ended up handing the camera to hubby. My hands were just too cold and I had to put my mittens back on. Besides, he kept on telling me I didn’t know what I was doing. (Hey! It’s a new camera! Really? I thought to myself OK, let’s see what you can do, Mister! I don’t like to admit it, but he did do better then me.)
So, I began to point things out to him, saying, “OH!!! Look at that over there! You must get that shot. Stand here, Bill, right here, the angle is perfect!” And so he would come over to where I was standing, focus the camera, and with a wee bit of help from me guiding him how to position the camera, he would then shoot. While he was shooting, I’d be looking around me, taking stock of what next to take. When hubby was finished with the picture, and we both looked at what he had gotten, I showed him where next to shoot.
Giving credit to hubby, he did shoot some photos after his “eye” saw. Overall though, I was the “eye”, and hubby was the “finger” that depressed the shutter on my Samsung Galaxy Camera 2. Please do enjoy our walk together on the evening we strolled together, I being the lookout and hubby being the photographer. All editing done by me. (smile) Hubby still doesn’t know what lies ahead in the um, editing room! LOL When he does, then he will understand why I pull my hair out sometimes! Again …. ENJOY!
