As my last post mentioned, I spent sometime by the lake yesterday. I used my Canon Powershot S3is on several captures but wanted to try my Sony A300 on some nature shots. I have practiced with it on portraits and such but wanted to see what it would do wide open in the “wild”. I have mixed results, the mix being from o.k. to that really sucked! As I have relative success with manual controls of my point & shots, I am somewhat frustrated by my lack of skill with a full on DSLR. For the most part I was able to place my self in an advantageous spot on most of my shots but the old Minolta lenses leave something to desire in the speed department. With that said they take great portrait and wedding shots so I am just going to have to hone my skills to maximize their strengths and work around their weaknesses.. Here is one of the captures of a Sea Gull Flyby!

I am a 55 year old guy who is asking questions about life like "what does it all mean?" and " how come hair will not grow on my head but grows real fast on my ears and back?" you know the deep stuff. I am married and have been for 24 years to the same wonderful woman( read into that: she puts up with me and I married up). I believe in Jesus Christ and that He died for all. The rest I am still working on. View all posts by The Jagged Man
