You all are going to get sick of me soon huh? Okay so I got my Sx-70 *Yay!!* and it works! Gloomy rainy day today, so no good light outside to shoot with, so I'm making do with whats inside. I shot about 5 pictures just to get a feel of it, and I think I'm kind of understanding how it works. (You're right Terri, I was too tempted and played too soon, and messed about 3 pictures up! ) I'm having a bit of trouble focusing with the Sx-70, any tips? Also, I think I just need to get some good tools to manipulate with.. what do you use? How do you do the overall blurry effect? Is that by a flatter tool? When I try to blur it just gets white and weird looking. Thanks! I'll show my attempts when I get something presentable. Right now they're all just blurry mushy messes.
