Right, I’ve spent this money on a digital SLR so I’m going to try and get as much out of it as possible. I’m not particularly interested in doing post-processing. I’m much more interested in being able to use pictures straight off the camera. So I won’t be shooting in RAW and don’t plan on doing much else besides cropping.
In addition to unearthing my old photography books (all the old SLR stuff is relevant as well as image composition) I’ll be having a stab at Photo a Day. Taking at least one photo each day and posting it up (mostly for my own reference). Posting may not happen each day but hopefully shooting will. Unfortunately with only a 30 minute lunch break at work and driving each way there won’t be a lot of opportunities for shots in natural light from Monday through Friday (at least not until the days lengthen a heck of a lot more).
So here’s the first shot:
Yes, the horizon is a little skewy and it’s a shame about the fencing on the side, but you have to start somewhere.
