Until now I've lived my digital photo life with a point & shoot as it's just too convenient; recently I decided to step up a little into the DSLR world and just wanted to share a couple from a recent trip. I've been shooting on the Aperture Priority mode (I think, I set the aperture and the camera handles the shutter) and doing some bracketing along with changes of depth of field to try to get the effect that I want. One of my problems is that I seem to like darker pictures, sometimes too dark. 1. Wanted to give the impression that I was getting ready to attack the twisties. 2. Very simple, Ride the World. No post processing done, haven't figured out that whole Photoshop thing.
