The Joy of Photography

I just returned from watching the movie ; Julie and Julia, hence the inspiration for the goofy title of this blog entry.

I feel just a giddy as young Julie did in the movie as she experimented her way through Julia Childs Book , 'Mastering the Art of French Cooking' , though I am certainly not mastering the art of fine photography.

But, I'm having fun.

With my new found recipe for dialing up ( or is it down ) the aperature, I am starting to achieve some calculated results.

Thank you to those who responded to my last blog entry asking how to achieve a specific result with my camera.
As you can tell, I took your words to heart and experimented.

Thank you very much for your input !

Shutter speed 1/125
f 3.5
max aperature 3.4
focal length 35.60mm
iso 50
