Victoria. Im in Harrisburg, PA and it looks like you get this way if thats your rig. I also spent 17 years in trucking and my brother drives for Keen Transport. What type of help are you looking for? I taught five photography classes at HACC for about seven years. I may have some of what your looking for in my brain. Brad
i appreciate your concern, but no, my camera's still not working. i don't have the extra money to get it looked at right now. it's ok though, i have another camera i can use for the moment. i just don't like it as well. i'm still busy with preparing my meals & clean up, and editing the wedding shots, not trying to take new pics at the moment. (my messages won't send from this site in the form of a private message when i try to reply.)
Sounds like a really great camera!! :D you should get that thing out and have some fun!! That's how I learn best, just start clicking and see what happens!! The three main setting are the exposure (faster or slower shutter speed. the faster the shutter speed, the less chance you have of a blurry shot, use a tripod for very slow shutterspeeds) which is lighter or darker, ISO which gives you the ability to let in more light and keep the shutter speed a bit faster but the higher the ISO setting, you will get more noise so I try to keep it low. and then there is Fstop. this setting will let in more light on a lower setting, but it is used to control you Depth of Field or dof. this is that nice blurred bg. you see around an close up shot of something.. the lower the fstop number the closer in and stronger you blur will be use the low number for very close, macro shots.. the larger the number the less blur, use the larger number for things like landscapes ect. God Bless, and have fun!
