This week I learned that if you are going to use software to zoom in on your photos you'd better make sure you dusted first!
I took loads of pictures, in about half an hour one morning, mostly in my living room and bedroom. The bedroom doesn't have a lot of natural light and I ended up rejecting lots of stuff where the flash over-lit what I was trying to do. My camera is just a basic point and shoot, so I'll have to learn to work with its limitations. I'm using Picasa to edit until I get something I'm happy with; for me that's all part of the learning to look:picking out the detail, cropping to emphasise a particular shape or colour or change the balance of the picture.
