    Natures Abstract. By LightSpeed. I'd like to know where I'm technically flawed

    i like the ant. that's what made it interesting to me, instead of just a purple flower.

    Dependence on Photoshop?

    those national geographic images from 85 were processed also. it was simply done in a darkroom instead of Photoshop. and i think you'll find that most photographers get it as right as they can in camera first. because it saves time in Photoshop. any pp that has to be done, takes time. time...

    Total Newb Move

    i have never read the manual for any of my point & shoots. i only discovered a few weeks back that one of them has a manual mode. one of them is basically a bridge. my two pocket cams have so many features that i've never bothered to even think about learning them. but, my dslr.... i read...

    there's something wrong with my camera

    lol. with a slower shutter, the moon was so bright i couldnt see any detail at all. probably because my iso was so high? or the wide aperature? everything i did was just super bright with no detail.. when jacked up the shutter, i finally got some detail. i was on my tripod of course, but it...
