Chasing the sun up on Moel Fenlli –> Clwyedian Range, North Wales
This year, my aim is to get better at taking photographs from a technical (nerdy) point of view. It’s one thing to hear I have an eye for a good picture but quite another to get praise for technical brilliance. And brilliance is what I want ^_^
Following instructions isn’t my strongest point and so sometimes it can take me longer than the average person to reach a satisfactory result (translate: if I wasn’t so stubborn and would listen to others now and again I could have already been at this point some time last year. Ah well. Better late than never!).
The above were all shot with F11 @ 1/200 and ISO 200. The one below was shot with F22 @ 1/200 and ISO 200. The foreground was obviously quite dark so I’ve taken a lot of shadow out in LR and subsequently it’s quite grainy. But I loooooove the rays!!
Now then. I’m of the opinion that because my trusted D5000 is quite old and only has 12.1 MP I will never ever be able to take fabulously sharp shots? I am kinda waiting for somebody to take my hand and show me how to get the absolute best out of my old little friend but so far I haven’t found a *camera buddy* who’ll do just that. There are some amazingly brilliant photographers over on IG but I’m sure they wouldn’t wanna spend their Saturdays or Sundays chasing shots in the Clywedian mountains with us so I guess I’ll just have to take a lot of bad pictures to get to the ones I’d love to see printed in my own four walls.
