BECAUSE YOU ALREADY HAVE IT; CHANCES ARE YOU KNOW HOW TO PUSH ALL THE BUTTONS AND YOU HAVE THE MANUAL (in the hopes that you did not throw it away- in that case, there is always youtube). Of course someone will always have a better camera than you do, but that does not mean that it takes better photos than yours. Technically, it may be better, but visually – no.
A CAMERA IS MERELY A TOOL, NOT A MAGIC WAND.
Cameras nowadays are light sensitive that they can capture images even in a dark room. Blurry images are not necessarily bad - it could convey movement. (this photo was taken in the dance floor. half naked guy eventually strutted his stuff!)
All cameras would have a -2, - 1, 0 +1, +2 scale.
(this image was taken with a Canon A400)
if there is too much light/sunlight, set your needle to the minus side - this setting allows less light into your camera and reduces glare and reflection.
When i first took this photo, the "luke's lobster" sign was just a white oval and you cannot see the people behind the window.
Disclaimer: All photos have been taken with my Canon Powershot SD1100 except where noted. All photos have not been enhanced except for the first two photos and the last photo. ALL ENHANCEMENTS ARE MINIMAL.
First photo had red eyes corrected and was enhanced in Adobe Photoshop using Levels.
Second and Last photo was enhanced in Adobe Lightroom for exposure and black clipping.
Watermarks, if present, are all added in Adobe Lightroom.
