Hi Richard,

You are absolutely right!

I have been reading a very interesting book full of good advice concerning digital photography. That is: Scott Kelby: The Digital Photography Book, 2007, Adobe Press. It is more than excellent. Beforehand I read a book written by a Hungarian and an English author for beginners in digital photography where they explained the technicalwords and the ideal settings. I enjoy reading the Kelby book - it is very practical and its style is fascinating.

My next step will be to find the settings on the camera.

How easy it was for me to work with my traditional type Olympus mju 120 when it was brand new 12 years ago - with its super modern settings ofabout 10 modes... (with flash, without flash, back flash; close, group, very far, red eye reduction, continuous shots)

Its 2nd volume is going to be published this summer. I think I won't wait for it to be translated but will order it from a bookshop. I will merge getting useful information with practising my English.:-)

I've read these words about the 2nd volume:

It's a completely new book with new information. It's meant to compliment the original one, not replace it. Scott recently made a post about it on his website.

O.K. :-)

Could you show me any of your photos you consider to be technically the best ones?

Margarita,

Allow me to look through some of the shots that I just took of my agapones (african love birds).

I am sure you will like them.

Oh, it suggests that you are advanced photographer

Shooting a moving object is something very professional!

The books say it is very difficult because as soon as we set our camera the 'object' will jump off the picture.
