Playing with my parameters

Today was the day I took my stabilisers off and cycled off on my own, figuratively speaking. (ed. It was actually 21 days ago).

I have always relied on the automatic settings on my camera to do the work, then all I have to do is point and click.  Oh the camera did come with pages of instructions which I lost and have since downloaded only to be as baffled by them as I was the first time I read them.

So some swatting up on exposure and shutter speed, I made a few notes in my note book and took to the field, or rather the path.  I did take some notes on the walk, but I have to admit, I had no idea what I was doing.  But all journeys begin with a first step.

  1. My favourite is the tree after the acorns. (They are cool too.) I feel very much the same when facing manual settings. Actually, I think my point-and-shoot might have even less of them than my previous Canon. How else can I understand ‘Easy Auto Mode’ AND ‘Auto Mode’??
