Overexposed

In the early summer we ran off with our cameras in hand. We took pictures of everything and anything, hoping to get some experience behind the lens. As I look at my older pictures I realize the mistakes I have made. I imagine by the time next summer rolls around I will have made countless more. A couple of years from now I expect to laugh at these old pictures.

I have been playing with Photoshop for about a week now. This picture is so over exposed, so much so, it really cannot be fixed. The left, where the sun is, is blown right out. I have since learned to not take pictures like the one above.

  1. The important thing is you’ve learned. Digital photography is great for learning because you don’t have to pay for developing–just look at your shots on your LCD/computer.

    Do you do exposure bracketing? It may be helpful under difficult light situation.

    1. I was using them but only while playing with hdr. I bought a canon rebel t5 . It is a great entry level camera, but I have out grown it. Bracketing only gives me 3 shots on the t5 I want 5. I am missing external mic, 3 options in the metering instead of 4. I’m happy to know the difference, and feel the measure of progress.

    1. Last boxing day I bought the T5 with 28-55mm kit lens and 75-300mm lens . A great deal one i’m very happy to have made. We also have 40mm 50 mm, 100 mm macro, 55-250 mm, extension tubes, We were given same advice a Henry’s, they said cameras will get better and cheaper, lenses not as quickly.

  2. I got the same deal but in 2015. I bought a cheap 50mm lens about a year ago, so now I have three lenses to work with. I wanted to get the L series 100 mm macro lens but it was just too expensive. Maybe when I win the lottery I will buy it.

    1. The only reason i get to use the 100 mm is because we have that 50mm. I feel the same I want the 100 -400 mm L series. 2400 then add the tax. I will get it but not sure when . Hopefully before I win a lottery . 🙂
