Morgan and I spent part of today at the Botanical gardens, trying out our new cameras and soaking up the Autumn sunshine.
The new camera is turning out to be an absolute joy. Easy to use, but with enough capability for creative control to make the results much more interesting.
I'm especially taken with the ability to do crisp close-ups, and to play with exposure and depth of field (focus depth). Loving it!
[Updated: Oh, I forgot to mention, we passed Russell Crowe having a bite to eat with the wife and bub at the outdoor cafe in the Botanical Gardens. Slouched down, with baseball cap, five day crowth and an whiff of surliness at being spotted. We both had cameras in our hands, and Morgan suggested the likely action. My suggestion, don't make eye contact and keep on moving!]
