Thanks! It is a Kodak Easy Share Z710. Some of the pictures I took of the KP345D were terrible, and I used a tripod on them to boot. I guess more reading and practice will be required. I was trying to catch 2 hummingbirds faced off in mid-air, but they're too quick for me. I was lucky to catch one.
Not bad, lighting is the key, and getting a little artistic. Good start with those. Hard part is getting a decent picture of a rifle with the whole thing in focus. Keep up the good work. Just don't break the camera by attempting self portraits.
