Lovebug

Finally the Sun Came back out in Texas! And my Cold is getting better!! It took all of my efforts to get outside and get this shot ..but i am quite pleased with the results..except for the crop it is sooc!

I just cant say it enough "Thank you,Thankyou, Thank you" for bringing my Final Slideshow to the P.P. and taking the time to view it!! I feel like an expert now at slideshows! LOL! This project has pushed me onto roads i never thought i would wander down!! As you all know i am terribly computer illiterate! But i am learning and so much , i have learned from all of you! :) xxoo

Bummer you missed the focus by this much..... I must admit this is a very difficult subject to get in focus.

Glad you are feeling better.

@ellimae Haha, thanks Ellen! It would have been nice having someone with me; but be warned, when I am near anyone that knows how to speak camera, I am a chatterbox; just won't shut up! :)

@agima By the way i had not watched your powerpoint on focus yet ! I bet that would have helped me out alot!! :)
posted January 7th, 2013  
ha ha ha.... I am not sure my video will help as it more about the importance of focus not how to achieve it. :)

I was going to do the video over the weekend but the realised I didn't have the powerpoint video at home.
