Aside from the occasional 70's film-like graininess in shots that are slightly underexposed (which is a quality I'm kind of in love with!), there hasn't been much difference in the end-result for me. However, using the manual setting has become almost second-nature, and I'm only four days in. I'm fiddling about a bit with the pictures once they're uploaded, and some cropping and playing with colour really does make a big difference. Oh, and in case you're wondering, I got those sandals at the Sears outlet website for $9.99!
Note the creative cutting out of half my face. Trust me. It's for the best.
Anyway, I will spare you the artistic interpretation of my 12-years of marriage to the Captain, and the photo of half my butt, which was supposed to show, in classic sepia, the merits of my favourite pair of jeans. Today, I got a lot of good landmarks, even if I got no good pictures of me. Here we have me in front of the old abandoned grain thingy:
Between taking pictures all over the village, I ran an errand or two and got myself a little exercise. Slowly but surely I'm getting the hang of manual photography. And, as long as I don't turn up as a "suspicious person" in the town paper's Police Blotter section, I should be okay.
