Taking Pictures

After owning my digital camera for nearly three years, I finally ordered a tripod and broke out the manual to figure out how to turn off the flash. I haven't been satisfied with the quality of the pictures that I'm taking and I know I'm gonna have to learn how my camera works if I want my pictures to improve. The camera that I'm using is a Nikon Coolpix L3. It's my first digital camera (yes, I'm kind of slow). I've had SLRs in the past and have taken a couple of photography courses at the local community college, so I have a basic understanding of cameras and how they work. I know I'm capable of taking decent pictures. Now that I'm making an effort, you can expect to see an improvement. I snapped some quick pictures after disabling the flash. Because of the low light there's some blurring (hurry up tripod), but I was happy to see the elimination of the flash's reflection.

I love the instant gratification of digital photography. I'm looking forward to learning more about it and improving as a photographer.
