Photography Tuesday - and Books
My challenge this week was to use the manual shutter speed on my camera. These are 3 of the pictures so you can compare - 1/4 (the lightest and brightest), 1/60, and 1/125(the darkest). These were taken at about 9:30 p.m. on an overcast day, outside on the patio table. It was interesting to compare the results. I think I could use this in some lowlight situations to avoid using a flash. I'd be interested to hear about some experiments that others have done.
I photographed my stack of books for summer reading. What a mix! There's everything from Reader's Digest "Digital Pictures" to Francine Rivers "The Prince". There are ones about India, Afghanistan, WWII Europe, Rwanda and Bosnia, and Egypt. I'll let you know how it goes - and how many I actually get read!!! Let's hear about your faves!
