Let me introduce myself.
My name is Marlies and I was born on February 3/1953 in Switzerland. I currently live in Halifax/Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Canada. I am a mother of 3 and have been interested in creative arts as long as I can remember.
Since I got my first digital camera in 2000 I have been taking photos like never before. Until then I never knew that I was good at taking pictures as it took too long between the time I took the photo until I had it developed and so never remembered what I did right or wrong. Now with the digital camera I have instant feedback.
That’s when I discovered that I have an eye for photos. I like to look for pictures that are not always the usual view and over the past almost 10 years I have vastly improved.
I started with a Sony Mavica FD92 camera and then went to a Sony Cybershot 5 until it started to eat my batteries. My rechargeable batteries ended up lasting only a couple hours. That’s when I bought a Canon PowerShot A720IS.
I can’t use a camera without LCD as I need to keep my right eye shut with my index finger and then I can’t press the shutter. So any camera where I have to use the view finder it out of the question for me.
