I had to take the camera off Auto and then take three photos of the same subject using different exposures which resulted...
...in this! Apparently a photographer has to know when to allow more or less light into the camera to avoid a photo being too dark or over exposed...or something like that.
I was quite unwell during the night and woke up feeling 'yuk' this morning so didn't want to use too much brainpower so turned the camera back to Auto for the next few photos.
It will take a while to remember what settings to use for particular photos but practice makes perfect as they say.
When I started to get a sore throat yesterday I was hoping I wasn't getting the flu after making trite statements in my last post about all the warnings on TV about the flu virus expected to hit our shores this year :-) However, all is well and I am almost back to normal once again. One of the Down to Earth forum members recently told us about a FluTracking Project which Aussies are asked to be part of. Here is a little info from their website:
FluTracking is an online health surveillance system to detect epidemics of influenza. We are looking for people who live in Australia and have easy access to email on a weekly basis. It doesn't matter if you are vaccinated or unvaccinated. It takes only 10 - 15 seconds each week. We ask if you have had fever or cough in the last week. This will help us find ways to detect both seasonal influenza and hopefully pandemic influenza and other diseases so we can better protect the community from epidemics.
It only takes a few seconds to sign up and 10 to 15 seconds a week to respond to the survey. You can also add other members of your household if you choose to sign up.
The flu has been left behind for my Northern Hemisphere readers I am sure. You will be pleased to see the last of a long and harsh winter and must be looking forward so much to the warmth of spring and summer. Here we are preparing our winter gardens and digging out the warm clothes once again.
Whatever the season is where you live have a wonderful day!
