Taking Pictures... And Learning New Things

I downloaded a book yesterday, yes... a BOOK. It's called Digital Photography Simplified... as I'm reading the beginning pages of this book I learn something new, how couldn't I, I'm not an expert, yet, on cameras and photography.
So... Today i learned this...

All digital SLRs and many small digital cameras
include the modes P for Program, A or Av for
Aperture-Priority, and S or Tv for Shutter Speed-
Priority exposure. The camera chooses both shutter
speed and aperture in P, making it good for quick
shots. In A, you choose an aperture for depth-of-field,
and the camera sets the shutter speed. In S, you
choose a shutter speed, and the camera sets the
appropriate aperture or f-stop.

If you didn't already know any of this, there you go... glad I could teach you a new lesson today! Take it or leave it... :)

This picture is positioned weird because I forgot my tripod at home and had to set my camera on the couch to get a group picture! :)

My younger brother Michael has a band concert tomorrow. He plays the trombone.. and he is one of the best out of... oh about 20 trombone players. I am very excited to go watch him play. I'll come back home tomorrow with pictures.

As some of you notice I did not do NOT ME MONDAY on Monday... today is Wednesday... yeah... I was extremely busy and LAZY on Monday. I will be sure to do one on next Monday!
For all those who have told me they enjoy reading them :)

Learning new things about cameras is fun! I still have my 35MM camera and all the lenses. I am thinking about selling them so I can buy new stuff for my Nikon hehe
I REALLY want a portable lamp and a background stand so I can take pictures of Jude at home without shadows. We'll see!

Ok, now you will have to explain to me what
Aperture-Priority, Shutter Speed-
Priority exposure, depth-of-field and f-stop mean! LOL. Glad to see that you are learning and having fun.

I so need to learn how to use my SLR. I've had it for almost 2 years and still don't know what everything means on it...just haven't had time. A lot of my photos come out too red. I guess if I tried to learn something I'd be able to fix it. lol ;-)
