Re: SP550 Birds

Hi Steve,

I like your photos! I am new to this forum and have only just bought the SP550 too, however I am a real beginner as far as photography is concerned and I only tend to use the AUTO mode! Which mode did you use to take your photos? Did you use the Fine Zoom option?

I printed the manual and read it but unfortunately it already assumes you know what you are doing, i.e. it's all very good to know how to change the aperture or the shutter speed but when should I change it and to what??? What I need I think is an idiot's guide to photography, can anyone recommend a good book magazine? I did start buying a photo magazine a couple of years ago, but again, it assumes you have the basic knowledge, which I haven't got!

Anyway, here are a few photos I took today... Please feel free to comment and tell me how I can take better shots.


and I cropped this last one:
