Around 7:30 AM yesterday I saw the buzzard soaring for its breakfast. I looked peaceful as it glided through the calm morning air.
My camera info for the shot is as follows:
Canon EOS Rebel Xti
Lense is a Tamaron 18-270 mm Di II set at 1/100 shutter speed, 6.3 aperture, Metering Mode is Evaluative Metering and an ISO of 100. The focal length was 270, White Balance was set to Auto and AF Mode was A1 Focus.
The second picture is a little trickery I suppose. From my angle and what was truly on the horizon there appears to be a body of water on the otherside of the tall tree in the foreground. At first I thought I had picked up a fog hanging over I-675 which is below that line between the tree and the what appears to be a land line in the distance. I actuality that is sky and the land line is a line of clouds.
Camera settings for this shot are as follows;
Same camera and lense. 1/50 shutter speed, 5.6 aperture, Metering Mode is Partial and Exposure Compensation is -1. Focal Length is 184, ISO is 100 and the White Balance is set to Daylight and AF Mode was again in A1 Focus.
I picked up a great magazine on digital photography. At least that is the section I got it from at the book store. In reality it is more of a book. Very few adds. It's called the "The Ultimate Guide To Digital Photography" Fully Udated 3rd Edition. It's actually a British magazine and I t hink it is great. Easy to read and very informative, especially for a novice.
