Out of the Box!

Thanks to my good pal Jheri I finally stepped out of my comfort box and put my camera on Manual mode and am shooting in RAW! I have had my camera for 4 years now and before yesterday I had only put it on Manual once to get 'twinkle' lights on the Xmas tree.

Here are a
few of my photos:




Thanks for the training session and the push Jheri! You rock! :)

hi, Pam! we "knew" each other from a loooonnnnnggggg time ago paper scrapping... are you still??

I have entered the land of photography as well and have even begun portfolio building my portraiture. It takes lots of practice but I hardly ever shoot in anything but manual any more.

I have a tip for you...
when doing sunset shots put your White Balance in "cloudy" mode so you really pull those colors in!!
Do you have a gray card? (really a white card to help create your own custom white balance- that is really the best to do IMHO.

Love that you came out of the box. :) What fun!!!
