Camera Results

I got the pictures back this morning from King Sooper’s and they did not turn out as well as I hoped. There are a few that are pretty good, but out of 3 rolls, a few is not that good of a percentage.

I'm going to continue to work on learning more about photography using this old camera until I have enough money saved to get a good digital SLR camera. I will post the pictures as soon as I can.

Here are some pictures that I have taken in the past. Please feel free to share these with others. A. Wilson Photography

New Toy for Angie

Brian bought a camera from his dad (below) before we met and I'm really interested in figuring out how to use it and take good pictures. He has a wide angle lens and a telephoto lens that I'm trying to figure out how to use. I haven't ever used anything but a point-and-shoot camera, so trying to decipher the manual and books has been "intersting." Figuring out f-Stop, apperature, depth of field, etc. has been challenging. If you know anything about photography, please feel free to contact me.

I found a photography class at the Aurora Parks & Rec for $50. This class will teach owners of digital, automatic or manual cameras. The class is 2 hours every Thursday night (7-9pm) for 4 weeks.

The Canon AE-1 (1981) was the first 35mm SLR camera to be controlled solely via a built-in Central Processing Unit (CPU) and made SLR photography avaialble to beginners and amateurs at a reasonable prices - with a record of over 5 million units been sold worldwide, the success of which firmly established Canon as the leader in camera innovations.

Christmas Decorations

We bought and put up the tree and decorated the house on Saturday.
We had so much fun.

Brian put up the outside lights on Sunday before the Denver game.
I get nervous when Brian is on the roof.
