Wow…there is so much to learn about a digital SLR camera. This first photo shoot was about getting comfortable with my camera. Thank goodness SLRs still have ‘Auto’ mode. I learned real quick that all these years of auto-focus is going to hold me back. I need to work on focusing in a controlled atmosphere at home.
I found and used the ‘Burst’ mode…I love, love, love it. I got some pretty darn cool mallard pictures using it. I also got some practice taking pictures of my friend Shelly. Every type of picture requires such different settings and composition. Lots to learn.
Over-all the day was pretty gray, but still we had fun. And, even though I’m more comfortable with my camera I still have a ton to learn. It’s going to take quite a while.
Pictures taken 2/13 at Washington Park Arboretum.
