Joined a Camera Club

October 17, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

Well last evening I attended and joined the Bay Photo Club. I wasn't sure I would fit in but really need a photo group to belong to and share photo experiences. I am happy to say that I feel right at home with the club and I look forward to future meetings and submitting photos for competitions. 

Earlier in the day I went out to Tiny Marsh. This is just such a jewel to me; close to home and a large wetland area with lots of wildlife. I had been trying to photograph the Ring Necked Pheasant and had had several opportunities for 'souvenir' shots on earlier outings. But yesterday I got lucky and got a shot that at least I can be proud of if not all I want it to be. I had come out of the woods and my EOS 60D was on shutter priority mode at 400 and auto ISO. When I saw the bird I was in a field with lots of sun and although I had the presence of mind to put the camera in high speed burst mode I didn't think to move it manual mode and jack up the shutter speed and stop down the aperture. As a result the picture is Ok but not as sharp as I would like. 

But, any time I go out, if I get at least one shot that pleases me I feel it has been a worthwhile experience. With each shot I learn what to do differently or better. 

It was a great day. Check out my pictures of Tiny Marsh.
