You could include this on your page or in the comments [smile] Give us a little insight into you.

These are photos of my cat I took over the last couple of days.  I try to periodically get photos of my kitty, so I will have the memories when she is no longer with me - which should still be a very long time as she is only 4 years old. 

The camera I use is an Olympus Tough (TG-830) It is shock proof to 7 ft (which means I can drop it and it will survive), and it is water proof to 33 ft (which means I can take underwater shots). No, I don't make a habit of dropping it, and for the most part the only underwater I do is in a swimming pool. LOL 

This camera has so many settings, and not being a photographer, I usually wind up shooting in *auto* mode which the photos turn out good sometimes and bad sometimes. Since I took these outdoors they turned out OK, but I am clueless as to how to make them better with the camera. The one with her under the wheelbarrow she was shaded (they look a bit *foggy* to me), and the one in the flower pot she was not. All these photos are *as is* - I did not do any adjustments with Photo Shop.

I have been thinking that I should learn more about this camera and photography in general, so I am thinking this Shutter Shed Challenge is one I should be participating in. I just might learn a thing or two. [biggrin]

Journaling:

During the summer months Ratella is always sleeping in the tall grass under the wheelbarrow, or lounging in the empty flower pot in the backyard. She has the choice to come in the house where it is cool, but apparently prefers her *nests*.

Ratella is a very pretty kitty! Love the flower pot one! Kitty, too, prefers to be outside in the heat instead of inside in the cool. Hmmmm...must be a cat thing.

Thanks so much for joining in and welcome. I love your photos and hope you have your beautiful cat with you for years. Mine lived to be 19 [smile]  Your camera looks like a great all round one and it is always good to be tough lol.
I have learnt to turn up my ISO when taking photos in the shade. Have a look at this info but if it is gobblygook I understand. Generally if you are in shade I would turn the ISO up to 200 or even 400. It is probably a bit 'foggy' as it is harder to get the contrast. When there isn't enough light the camera takes longer to take the photo and you can get blur as well. I take a photo each week for my local cafe in very dull candlelight and by turning the ISO up to around 1600 I can still get a quick shot and enough light getting in.
You could even try editing the photo in photoshop. Which version do you have ?
