The cold and wind the past couple of weeks has kept me (and my camera) inside, so I’ve been trying to find inspiration in things just lying around the house (like the cat). I tried to take some cool shots of our Monopoly game the other night, but they didn’t turn out as great as I had expected. I should have learned my lesson by now to not set the camera to auto, but I’m pretty sure I had it set to no flash/auto. I think this translated to a wide aperture, which meant that instead of getting a nice clear close up of a game piece I would get a blurry game piece, a blurry game board, and maybe a portion of a plastic house in focus. That’s what I get for being impatient!
