For Christmas, I received a new camera. It is my first digital SLR camera. It is much more technical than any point and shoot I’ve owned, but the picture quality is so much better. Still, I have a lot to learn about the camera and photography.
To see how or if my skills develop over the next year, I decided that I want to take a picture of the same thing once a month. We live on a river, so I decided to use a bridge along the river as my focal spot. I got nervous about taking these pictures in manual mode, so I did them in “P” mode. After looking at the pictures once I was home, I wished I had spent the time adjusting the setting in manual mode. The pictures turned out very blue, so I did some adjusting to “warm” them up a bit.
On January 1, 2014, it was 7 degrees, overcast with flurries, and it was around 4:00 in the afternoon.
It’s pretty bland right now, but I think it will get more exciting as the season’s change.
I had to show some of the local residents of the river. While they are still here, at least.
