On occasion I have been known to talk to inanimate objects. Especially when I get frustrated with them. The two objects I talk to the most are computers and my sister’s point and shoot camera. I love to take photos but it can be a very frustrating experience with this type of camera. Particularly when the subjects are moving at a fast pace. Often my conversations go something like this…
Hurry camera! Take the picture! Please, take the picture!
As I am depressing the button and waiting for the camera to think about it.
Oh crap…stupid camera. I hate this camera.
As the dogs are long gone by the time the camera takes the picture.
I’m sure that I have missed many national geographic moment type photos with the point and shoot. In fact I miss the moment entirely. In fact I have an entire computer full of after moments.
But no more. Thanks to friends and family and a year and a half worth of saving up I was finally able to buy a new camera last week. I’m so excited. I bought a Canon EOS Rebel T2i.
Except now I won’t be able to blame the camera for my bad shots.
Now if I could only figure out how to work it.
