So last night I think its nice out lets go try to get some pictures of moving objects, my horses and see how it goes. Newbie mistakes to avoid. 1. Forgetting your camera's manual at home, and it locks up with an ERROR message... ERR CHA. Take quad go home figure it out, head back out. 2. Forgetting an additional memory card, after you have already gone back home read in the manual that it could be the card and you've gotten rid of all the images and reformatted it and it didnt work. 3. Forgetting your surroundings and kneeling down to get a great shot and then remembering your in the horse pasture and your knee is suddenly feeling smooshy.:banghead: I still would like a falmpalm smilie lol. So yes, these were my newb mistakes and I tell you if anyone can give me a hint on trying to take decent horse photos, please share. I had an 1100 pound mare trying to be a lap dog and of course both of them thought my neck strap was something to nibble on. This is the only decent shot I really got, I know the lighting is a bit harsh and I know I cut off my geldings ear but I love the expression in my sons face.
