I am no photographer. I don't have the patience, the eye, or the aptitude with gadgets. I can read a manual, but the little simple camera I have (which I got primarily because it was pink) came with a web address for a web manual (webual?), and needless to say I have not gone to that address, nor read that on-line manual.
What I do, then, is just aim the camera in the general direction of what I want to take a picture of and click and hope for the best. And sometimes I get lucky. I like photographing my cats in Maine, because there is so much sunlight in the house that I can take pictures in which their eyes are normal and not glinty little devilish pinholes.
