I'm going back and forth between the memoir, home management and a photography project today. On this morning's dog walk I multi-tasked and took along my D200. I'd forgotten how versatile it is compared to the iPhone which I've been using exclusively on this blog the last few weeks. I was really excited to get home and look at my photos. I think because I learned much of my skills using film, I don't tend to look at every photo as I take it, preferring to wait until I get home and upload to my Mac.
I'm going to try to stop doing that. Halfway through my photo shoot I made an adjustment to my exposure setting without realizing it. This happens all the time and I don't know how. I somehow set the exposure compensation button to +4.0 . This is something you might want to do in very bright sunlight, not on a grey overcast day like today.
I thought the photos were ruined but I decided to mess around with them on iphoto. Some of them couldn't be saved, like the one above. The colour was pretty much faded out many of them so I switched a lot of them to black and white. I thought I'd share the ones I'm most happy with.
