Screen test

 
I am trying to learn how to manually adjust my camera.  The automatic settings work fine for quick snapshots, but for super close-ups or interesting framing, it seems useful to know what aperture and shutter speed will do.  So I went out this morning and did some screen tests.  The monarda seemed to enjoy posing!




This one was actually taken with automatic exposure and super zoom.  So pretty flitting around!

You have a great eye for composition, color, and--especially with Luke and Ullani-- story, and you always take gorgeous pictures. Never would have suspected that you weren't manually adjusting every shot--the intelligence of modern cameras on automatic is amazing. That said, you don't have to be an incredible expert on aperture and exposure to have fun playing the controls. Looking forward to seeing what you make as you learn.
