ISO 3200 July 25, 2008

After a month of wind and some truly crappy photos of Things That Move, I’ve discovered the “H”-setting on my DSLR, which allows me to effectively boost the ISO from a max of 1600 to double that. This should allow me to get in closer to moving subjects like leggy flowers in a breeze, or shoot hand-held shots at lower light levels.

Yeah, I know – I’m a slow learner!

But still, here are my first ventures into that faster (albeit grainier) terrain.

Bugs Fucking:

Bees Buzzin’:

Yeah, thems iz tiny ones!

And a hand-held low light take on a quiet neighborhood up in the hills:

Some day I’ll read the instruction book which came with this unit. Then you’ll be sorry!!

I think you’re taking time to learn your camera is working out well for you.

(I want to write something really naughty right here, but I won’t since this is a family blog)

The graveyard picture is intriguing. Do I see a ghost back there among the trees?

It is? That explains the title of the first photo above. πŸ˜‰

Gods help us all if you ever learn to use that camera, Cuz!! πŸ˜† πŸ˜†

Those naughty bugs! πŸ˜‰ Hey, thanks for the words of encouragement, btw.

8. The Pagan Sphinx - July 27, 2008

What kind of bug is that? I love the orange and black against the bright yellow and green.

i wish i was as slow a learner as you
i take the crappiest pictures
you take the best ones

10. Bobbie - July 27, 2008

All wonderful! But the graveyard – that’s the best! Really beautiful. They do seem to be the nicest neighborhoods, don’t they?

11. littlebangtheory - July 27, 2008

Why yes, they do – they’re really a laid back bunch! πŸ™‚

DCap, you don’t see the bulk of what I shoot… for a reason!

PS, no idea what kind of beetles those are. But yeah, the colors are spectacular (and more so in person.)

12. littlebangtheory - July 27, 2008

Oh, and kk, yer welcome. We all need each others’ good words.

Reading the user’s manual? Ah, the refuge of last resort! πŸ˜‰

While you have the book open, the next topic for your perusal is how to operate spot metering. You’ll be happy you did!
