I always mute the camera because I often need to take pictures in places where ... well, I'm not supposed to be taking pictures! The restroom, stores, fitting rooms, museums, you name it. When you use the camera's timer, though, it is useful not to mute it, because you sometimes can't tell if the camera has already snapped you or not. When this happens, you might end up having silly pictures like the ones below and above.
Look at Dante all cute there in the background! :P. I bet he knew I should have waited longer!
I seem to not get how to use the light properly. My pictures are either too light or too dark, eeeh :/ ...
I often catch the cats doing something funny and want to take a picture of them. Very few times such pics come out good, they are usually blurry :(.
Our cats' eyes turn into evil eyes at night!
Sometimes it's not the camera, but you. Look at us! We look miserable and the baker is all happy, haha. And then me with an awkward face in complete darkness ...
And very often pets do not cooperate to make a good picture.
Hope you're all having a great weekend! :D
