Oh, my gosh. Those are brilliant photos — in every sense of the word. And I appreciated that little note about spot metering and single point focus. I remember reading about those things in the book I got with my new camera. I’ll got back and re-read that. I’m finding that’s an easy way to learn, when there’s so much to learn — take on something new when it comes with a context.
Thanks Linda! One of the beauties of digital cameras is that you can experiment to your heart’s content with no expense, and I know exactly what you mean about learning. I’m still in the learning curve with a new camera too, and with it came a little book entitled “User’s Manual”. In it are just the very basics, but one night I was prowling around on the Nikon website and found another book (fortunately downloadable) for that camera called “Reference Manual” and it contains all of the really good stuff that help so much to know about how the thing works. I will be experimenting and learning for years to come!
