So wrong I was... our second 'club' night had me wielding the club bow and loving it. Two weeks later I had my own. A Ben Pearson Advantage to be exact. A left handed one. Because apparently I shoot left. How could I have been writing right handed all these years?
You must know that this sport is not cheap. Once you get bitten, it's like being a papercrafter in a paper store. You have to have everything. The guys jokingly call this a Grand sport, because they spend a grand every time they walk into an archery store. I don't blame them.
There are a lot of things I could tell you about archery that would bore you to death, but because this is after all a 'crafty' blog (and you aren't that interested in archery are you?) I will stop here.
This post is more about the photo's I took on our first 'club' night. I was practicing my photography while trying very hard not to be noticed by all the scary new people that my husband so easily conversed with.
I used the Canon PowerShot S5 IS, and edited with Picasa 3. I shot at various angles and depths, and had fun with my settings. I do still wish I had a manual lens though. It's extremely difficult and technically challenging to adjust settings on a camera that doesn't have one (or so I think). I also wish I had a lens with greater zoom, to prevent too much pixilation on shots that inevitably are too far away for my current camera to handle.
