Breath of non-fresh air


Are the fish Stinky? I think so from this womans expression. Some good shots I took recently were all taken on VGA mode cos I wanted to be able to take more pictures on my memory stick. Of course they are completely useless cos I can't upload them on shutterchance seeing as they are less than 0.5 megapixels. arrrrrrrrrgghhhhhhh. I had some pretty cool ones including my fruit pics. Oh well, its good I learned the lesson now.

sadsad sad sad sad Please, please, please promise me that you will never ever do that again Better to take 5 high quality good images than 100 low-res mediocre images. Otherwise save up and get a bigger memory stick. Its a worthwhile investment.

Liking the composition of the image but not its quality. What did you do to it?
E Etomi: It looked better on my laptop. I'm still experimenting so it can't be perfect all the time.

About the memory thing, tell me about it!
I think the woman is not happy with the quantity ;-) Very lovely capture! Sometimes we learn....sometimes we don't...have you??? lol!
E Etomi: I have I have I have

idleye says .... yes more is not always better! But a good idea and pretty good execution. Where i would say more is better is more images of this slice of life to select from.(see my comments to barbieK about moving your feet while taking photos). Think about the story you are going to tell and how.
E Etomi: Thanks Idleye, I saw them but took these a while back.

Yes yes yes, the tragic case of needing more GBs. Well dont worry, I have a feeling you are getting a 350D very soon, make sure you get a 1GB card,(at least) then you can snap away at the highest quality without worrying.
of course you would then need to start thinking about hard drive space, and then if you start shooting raw, you would start thinking about PSCS or at least PS element, then you would soon realize that the flash on the 350D is restrictive, oh my god another $500 for flash, "this 18-55mm lens sef, its cheap and useless..... I need to get another lens" and the story goes on an on....

But as long as you are pragmatic about the tools you buy, you will be fine. But then again if you are like some people in Naija and you have a pile of money in a european bank, go ahead and buy all the tools you can set you eyes on !!! Lol.

As for this picture, love the composition and subject. dont like the processing as much.
E Etomi: Oh noooooooo. Tis an expensive hobby this. Thanks for the heads up. I see a 350 coming my way too smile
You need a new camera. I second Deji's point. I normally delete shots I don't think are worth the space on my camera to get better ones.
E Etomi: Yeah, and you guys watchout when I do get one smile
