Hello everyone! My name is Amanda and I just got a new camera. It is a Canon Powershot SX10 IS w/ 20x's Zoom. I am a real newbie when it comes to these types of cameras. Loving the camera but need some tips and tricks to take great photo's! I'd love to learn how to get it to focus on your subject while making the background blurred out??.... and other great tips! I know it's probably the oldest one on the book but like I said... I'm a real newbie.... LOL I love to take pictures of my two kids and since Christmas is coming very shortly I'd love to take some great pictures for the season. Can anyone spare some tips and tricks for me?? Thanks so much!
