Cool Picture Taking 101

Greg let me in on one of his "secrets" - if I'd have read the book that came with the camera, I would've found it myself ...
I always heard about "portrait" or "landscape", but didn't know what the difference was. Well, if you look at this one that I took (we were over at my MIL's over the weekend, and she has a tree that Eephus just loves) with the camera NOT set on portrait, you'll see that everything in the background is in focus ...

This one, that Greg took (of course) was with the "portrait" setting - see how all the background junk is faded out, so that the emphasis is on Eephus (and the branch in front of him) ... Now that I know this, maybe I can get some better pictures!

Thanks for the tip - now if I can just get them to hold still!!

Eeph is a gorgeous bird and most of your pictures of him look like they belong on greeting cards.
