Still workin' it

I finally got out on the bike again today, but didn't get very far.  I'm still learning how to use my camera with nothing but manual settings.  It makes a HUGE difference.  Post-processing time is nearly zero and my exposures are spot on.  As long as I have a minute to think it through, that is.

Ah, the 4th. Again

Back to basics

I went out on my bike on Saturday to practice using the camera the old-fashioned way, where you think through what combination of ISO, shutter speed and aperture to use in every situation.  Of course, with film, ISO was non-negotiable once the film went in the camera.  I got pretty good exposures of uninteresting subjects.  The point was to learn, learn, learn which button/dial does what and make it second-nature.  Have to keep doing that.
