Focus on Life 2-52
This week has been a bit trickier than last week. Take a photo of a silhouette, sounds simple enough right? um, ha ha hardly. I couldn't have been any more wrong if I had been trying.. I have had this camera since last summer, it's an Olympus EPL5, it's a thing of beauty and I love it to bits but it came without a manual... a new factory fresh, straight from a certified dealer, camera, without a manual, fab! So I searched and read and fiddled my way to fury until finally after 4 hours I located a digital copy of the manual for download. It has all the setting information I need but by this time the light was already fading so I had to get a move on and just try and catch one on the hoof.
I actually really like this photo. I have hardly any of George because, like me he is photo-phobic, but this really captures his essence right down to the daft ear flaps on his hat. So it is a silhouette and also a minimalist representation of my lovely husband!
I have to say that one of the reasons I wanted to take this challenge was because I wanted to learn how to use my camera. I am chuffed to bits that this is only the second week and I have been forced out of my comfort zone and have a much better understanding of the how, where and why already.
Thank you Sally :)
