Lately, I've been enjoying a renewed interest in photography using my digital SLR, a Canon Rebel T1i. There's something kind of addicting about trying to get that perfect shot. Last fall, I began taking an online Photoshop course that has helped me take my photos to a new level. Below are some of my recent favorites, one with before and after.
Taken last night and processed to get the Blue Moon effect. This was taken in aperture priority mode, at f/5.7 and ISO at 3200. I increased the ISO and reduced the aperture as much as possible to get the faster shutter speed- for this it was 1/25th.
An alligator at the Jacksonville Zoo. Aperture priority mode, f/5.7, auto ISO. Slight adjustments in Photoshop, sharpening, increased contrast and increased saturation
This is a finch that flew into my window one day and was saved from the dog. Aperture priority mode, f/5.7, auto ISO. I applied a custom, third party action set to this photo to get the great retro look.
As you can see- I like to shoot in aperture priority mode.
