1/100 SS, F 5.6, ISO 200 (with 70-300 telephoto on a tripod)
Should have used a larger aperture...I wonder if it would have looked differently. By the way it will be a full moon on Thursday night when we have our little meeting. If it's clear maybe we can step outside for some shots. Bring your tripods if you have them and you longest lenses.


1/15 SS, F 22, ISO 200
Really cool light hugh!


1/25 SS, F 32, ISO 200
This is a picture of Mt. Rainier from Red Top Lookout


1/640 SS, F 5.6, ISO 200

1/320 SS, F 5.6, ISO 200, +1
1/160 SS, F 5.6, ISO 200, +2
Notice how the exposure compensation changed the shutter speed. The snow looks way whiter and crisper in the last picture. Just a fun experiment.


1/6 SS, F 5.6, ISO 1600
I am learning that I need stop always opening my lens open wide. This would have been better with less depth of field and a tripod since I can't hold my camera steady. So aside from really bad focus I thought it was a cool picture. I just read that a good rule to go by for handhold you camera safely with out camera shake problems is to use the inverse of your camera lens. Example...I was using my 70-300 telephoto so I shouldn't try to handhold it past 1/300 of a second.

I wish I would have taken this in landscape and put his face in the upper left hand corner. But I really love the dramatic lighting even though half of his face is in shadow!
