Love Takes Work

Have you ever fallen out of love with someone, or something, only to rediscover the passion again? Well, I fell out of enchantment with my 
camera the past few weeks. I blamed the lighting - even the trees! 
(not having enough leaves to shade me properly)...

What do you do when a relationship is in trouble? You work on it! So, I 
trolled the internet, read my manuals, and read the 'dslr for dummies' articles.
I then took my camera out and just spent quality time with her...
Most experts say to carry your camera everywhere and take lots of experimental shots.

I had stopped using auto mode months ago. The problem was overexposure. No matter what I did, I had blow-out! Then, after much fiddling with the setting, I got into spot metering and Wa-La!
My depth of field is again blurry- the 'noise' is gone and we are in love 
all over again. Canon DSLR's are notorious for overexposure problems. 
(Now they tell me)... So be prepared: use spot metering for better 
details and use the 'cloudy' setting to warm up your images -
(another DSLR issue-they seem to shoot in a bluer tone). 
Also, shoot in RAW and largest format for better editing after the shoot...
You'll be glad you did! - Reva

I don't yet have a DSLR, but will remember this for future reference. I'm really taken with the bold pattern on this skirt.

I would not have know you and your shutters were having a rift. By the looks of things, one would have believed all was well. Congrats on your reconciliation!

I love, love that belt. I have always been drawn to tooled leather. Must be the cowgirl in me. The graphic print on your skirt is just wonderful.
