My new camera

I have a new camera. I've never had a camera before. The first thing I decided to do with it was take a lovely picture of Clarissa. I thought you might be interested in some of the things that I learnt.

ask-first
1. Ask before you take a photo.

right-way-up
2. Hold the camera the right way up.

center
3. Get the subject near the centre of the picture.

facing-wrong-way
4. Make sure that everyone is facing the right way.

smile
5. Make sure that everyone is smiling.

too-far-away
6. Get in close to the subject.

too-close
7. Not that close.

hold-straight
8. Hold the camera level.

paw-in-front
9. Don't put your paw over the lens.

too-dark
10. Check the exposure.

too-light
11. Check the exposure. Again.

blur
12. Focus.

dont-wobble
13. Keep still.

cut-off-ears
14. Don't cut off the top of their ears.

too-high
15. Too high!

too-low
16. Too low!

dont-get-in-the-way
17. Make sure that Nigel Floppyears doesn't get in the way. Or anyone else.

Now you're all ready to take the photo.
Press the button, and --

final

18. Make sure that everyone hasn't walked off 'cos they're bored.


I'm going back to my pencils.
