This Thursday, I have to share with you a very very important lesson – please PLEASE! figure out how to reset your camera to factory settings if you ever let your friends mess with your camera settings. Sadly, I learned this lesson the hard way.
My story: This summer, a couple different friends of mine took pictures with my DSLR. They like to play with the settings, so they did so. In September, I happily set off to see and photograph Copenhagen, Stockholm, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Tallinn, Gydnia/Malbork Castle, and Oslo. I carefully took thousands of photos, expecting them to look as nice as the ones I took on our trip to Europe in May. When I returned home, I eagerly checked out my pictures… and cried. They’re all blurry! Then I looked up how to reset my camera and went on to take some nice pictures on my JetBlue trip.
Oh, and no, I don’t blame my friends. I can’t; it’s not their fault I don’t know how to properly use my own camera. I just hope this tip saves you from making the same mistake. No, I can’t post my blurry pics; they still make me cry.
