Nature Photography March 13, 2011
The photos above were also edited a bit in Photoshop using the curves adjustment. except the image of the sun. I am looking forward to taking more pictures as time permits.
What I learned today was that because it was cloudy I needed to kick up my ISO setting in order to capture the color I obtained and a usable shutter speed. As many of us know, when you kick up the ISO it also adds more grain to the image so as the images are zoomed in on and cropped there is more grain in the image.
I also took a look at the White Balance adjustment of the camera.afterward I took my pictures. I may have altered that a bit to get better colors, that is something I will have to tinker with a bit more in the future.
When it comes to film vs. digital, let's face it, I would not have posted these pictures so quickly to share them with you. Scanning film negatives or prints would have lost out to more grain when I finished cropping the images and I would have been a bit disappointed in the outcome. Digital pretty much provides more options for me that I had been used to with film so for todays pictures I am pleased with digital.
