Last summer I upgraded from a point and shoot camera to my first DSLR. The camera made its maiden voyage overseas on our trip to Scotland and to justify the expense (and the fancy extra lens I bought myself for Christmas) I’ve been reading up on how to take better photos.
Anything I like from 2017 will go up in the Photography portfolio, but pictures I take this year get to count towards my 365 challenge.
This is an overturned tree stump on the shore. I thought it looked better in black and white.
And for something completely different, this is one of my kids falling off a sled
I’m a newbie at photography so I’ve been relying a lot on preset functions and full auto mode, but for this one I had to take more control. I knew that the camera sensors would try to make the snow gray, so I bumped up the exposure and after a few tries at panning with the motion of the kids and not liking the result, I also set the shutter speed to 1/1000.
This brings my creative collection up to 6!
