Another photographer friend of mine and I went for an 8 hour walk all through downtown Toronto yesterday. Forgot to put sunscreen on my legs so they pretty much resemble a blushing lobster. Anyway, got a few shots I like. Today's my final day with the 30-day free trial of LR3 so I took advantage and dialled up some of yesterday's catches. Gotta say, I'm liking the LR3 enough I'm gonna have to put out the coin for it. Near the end of yesterday's outing I also started shooting in full manual mode, which turned out to be surprisingly easy. It does take a bit more time to get it right, but it really makes you think more about what you're doing. For quick shots or moving subjects, I'd still stick to Av or Tv mode, but for static images I'm probably going to start shooting only in manual. For those who haven't tried it, give it a whirl, you might be pleasantly surprised. 1. 2. 3. 4.
