Meet My New Friend, Oly
Oly was under the tree on Christmas morning. What a wonderful (and unexpected) surprise she was. Although this camera was on the top of my wish list, I knew it would require some time for me to save enough money to buy it. I never expected to have it so soon.
Since Christmas morning I’ve been reading the manual and becoming familiar with Oly. Like any new friendship, it requires some getting-to-know time. I am willing to invest the time needed – and after going through over 125 pages of the camera’s manual, I realize that time and patience are going to be needed.
On top of learning all about the camera, I also need to gain much understanding about the fundamentals of photography. Aperture, Shutter Speed, ISO, White Balance, Exposure, Metering, Focal Length...and goodness knows what else. Plus, how they all work together to create a great image.
