Mom's Front Yard
Day One. Walked around the front yard taking pictures of everything that caught my eye. Trying to learn the interface of the camera. It has a few more buttons that I'm used to playing with. I keep forgetting to check the light meter when moving from shot to shot. I'm also not used to having to use the view finder. Not sure if I can redirect to the LCD without losing all of the information in the view finder, but the whole squinting into the view finder thing is awkward for me right now. I'm sure I'll get used to it quickly though. I also need to figure out how to devise some sort of ultra-mobile tripod. My hands aren't as steady as I would like. You wouldn't think that'd cause too big of an issue given what I'm shooting, but it makes it hard to frame close up shots with slim margins. Basically, I need to figure out how to get the camera to float stably in mid air, pointed in the direction I want.
