Last week, I got myself a neutral density filter for my camera, because I was tired of having so many overexposed pictures. It worked out pretty well last weekend. Everybody seemed to like my wheat picture.
So, today, I went into the woods, all overconfident in my new equipment. It was pretty much midday, which means shafts of white-hot sunlight stab into to the deep, dark shadows all over every picture I took. Basically, all my stuff is simultaneously overexposed and underexposed, all in the same shot. Maybe there is come combination of equipment and technique that can counteract this sort of thing, but I don’t know what it is.
Anyhow, here’s some pictures.
I think this deer escaped from the military base on the other side of the mountain, and is actually wearing some sort of top-secret military cloaking device. You might think I’m just a bad photographer, and that the picture is out of focus, but she was out of focus in real life, too.
This little waterfall is the first picture I’ve ever taken with my camera set to fully manual mode where you can actually make out what it’s a picture of. I guess I should be thankful for small miracles.
