    One step forward, two back this week. I went to take kayaking pictures of my kids. Spent the whole (sunburning) day taking what I thought were awesome pictures. SIGH..... I forgot to move my ISO back from the night before. Worse yet is I was thinking to myself that the exposure was weird. I figured it was from the sun as it kept going in and out from clouds like a roulette wheel or from the glare on the river. Did I once check my settings? pfffthhhhhh Lesson #256456 learned!!!

    No need to CC as I can probably sum it up as 1600 ISO? what the hell were you thinking. Hot spots galore!

    The pics that I would have liked..... if I wasn't an ISO knob.....

    Join the club. I can't tell you how many times I've done that. I try to remember to crank it back before putting the camera to bed for the night and before turning it on in the morning, but I still forget occasionally. I wish it automatically reset on power-down.

    You can always get a camera that shoots at ISO 1600 and looks perfect. The 5DMk2 or D700 come to mind. :p

    I hate it when that happens though. When you're lining up your shot, just remember to glance at your camera settings in your view finder. It's easy enough to do. I always start from the left, and quickly scan right looking for anomalies. That's how I avoid making such mistakes.

    Ahh.. that definitely sucks! But, hey, I have certainly been there. I shot a practice engagement session fairly recently, and I shot them at ISO 3200 (as I was experimenting with the ISO expansion the night before). Fortunately, I realized after about 20 shots and still managed to get a few keepers.

    Anyway, good shots despite that fact. Thanks for sharing!

    I know it's from that game, but who authored it? Games don't write themselves. :) If you can answer that, you'll win the prize!

    It's comforting to know I am not alone in my idiocy. I hope I have learned my lesson since that tattoo might be a bit garish. ;)

    If your camera has a two button reset, some/most nikons do, get used to using it. I have done this in the past and it always upsets me. I am always "wow how am I getting such awesome sutter speeds" dur dur......
