Uh...it's silver?!?

This is what I said, half joking half serious, when a coworker asked me what were the characteristics of the camera that I got for Christmas. In my defence, it's my first "grown up" camera...you know with a zoom and more than three functions. After that humiliating episode, I understood the necessity of a canon powershot workshop. Yesterday morning, braving the snow storm, I went to my local camera store to find myself with a group of sweet elderly people who required a 10 minutes explanation on how to set the date on their camera. I was not that bad afterall! Especially now that I have been getting "mini workshops" from the same coworker who made me feel like a complete loser two weeks ago. I still have 341 pictures to take in order to complete my project 365...plenty of time to apply what I learned. And what did I do during the date setting chaos? I wrote this post on paper.

It's good to work out how to get the best photos from your camera! Can I give you a word of warning on the Canon -I had a Canon Powershot that I bought last June - 6x zoom being the feature I liked - but on the 31st of December the screen broke - I didn't do anything too it - just took it out of the bag and the screen looked like a bullet had gone through it - and a digital camera with no screen is not a lot of use - I would buy some of the screen protectors that you can get for them - the screens aren't protected under the warranty - and make sure you keep it safe in a case! I was sad to lose mine!

Looking forward to seeing your next 341 photos!

I love the idea of your camera workshop with the sweet little old folks. I need a camera workshop myself!
