Digital Diva Diaster

I went to Louisville to visit with Bridget and her boyfriend S.  I have had a hankering to taste the dairy delight I caught on a morning television show, called Geli's Cakes on Bardstown Rd...Italian Ice Cream!!!

It was wonderful!  So creamy and smoother than the ice cream I am accustomed to.  It was absolutely heaven.

I took this picture of Bridget and S. walking down Bardstown Rd. ahead of us.  I thought they looked so cute holding hands.

The digital camera is unforgiving...you can not have the slightest movement.  The shutter is unlike a 35mm SLR which is measured in fractions of a second.  I am disappointed in so many of my blurry pictures.  This one was even worse, because I thought the camera was broke.  In all the pictures there was this strange extra blurry white burst in the left corner!  Oh drat!!! I have finally ruined my camera!

Then I realized all the tainted photo's were after the ice cream......Hey, wait a minute.

I looked at the camera lens...yup!  Ice Cream smeared in the left corner!  But...Italian Ice Cream.

Mary that has been my problem with a digital.  Mine is a Fugi 3800.  I am going to look at a Canon Rebel Digital.  Maybe it will be more forgiving.   john

I borrowed my mom's digital camera to take pictures of her at her birthday party Saturday.  I was so frustrated with it because it kept zooming in, which I didn't want, and then it stopped taking pictures altogether.

15 minutes went by with me trying to get another picture, to no avail...until I saw the words in the display on top that indicated the disk was full.

oh.

first of all...my dig camera goes blurry every other pic and I don't know why..and I hate icecream so it can't be that. But blurry and all you captured the moment and I love it!

ROFL!!  Damn that italian ice cream!!!  tehehe... Yup, frozen dairy products and delicate camera equipment just don't go together.  It also helps if YOU stay perfectly still, hold your hands steady, and wait until the moment when your subject will be the most stable in your lens.  Good lighting helps too.  Movement photos are still something I struggle with.  Just keep practicing!  :)

It's still a great photo!  Sometimes the blur can be artistic!

I think the picture looks cool with Italian ice cream on the lense!  I have to admit at times I miss my old 35mm ... but, I do LOVE my digital!

I keep smudging my lense too. It's driving me nuts. But, I have the blurred shake problem going on when I try to take a pic too. I like this pic though. It has a mystical look about it. :-) ---Robbie
