Size Matters

Two days after I posted last month’s blog with photos of wildflowers, club member Clinton (not his real name) taught me how to change the setting on my camera to use the most megapixels in my images.  My point-and-shoot has 12.1 megapixels and now the camera is set to use all of them.

I couldn’t wait to get up to Yosemite and photograph the dogwoods with the new camera setting.  Each spring Chris and I head to the park to see the blooms and have pizza at Curry Village.  This spring we were a little early and found only a handful of trees in bloom.

I’m not sure if increasing the photo size on my camera did anything for viewing images on a computer.  It did nothing to stop my shaking hand so I either need a tripod or software that will sharpen close ups to get the best detail…or both.

However, the images I submitted for April’s Photo Share held up in size to the others (size matters) much better than last month’s cropping mishap.

I learned so much during April’s meeting and will share that in the next post.
