  2. Day Three of broken leg

    This stinks. I am stuck at home because I can't drive with the right leg in a cast. I guess I could move to England so that I could drive but that seems a little extreme. Also because of the recent rotator cuff surgery I can't use crutches or a walker either. The answer is something called a knee walker.

I took my camera so I could test a few things out since many people here have expressed an interest in shooting high school football this fall. I was able to get some good shots and I think I will be able to give some good ...

    We went on two shoots in two days this weekend. When we got home I sat down at the computer to transfer my pictures and do a little post processing. The entire time she kept asking me if I was through yet. Finally I got up and she proceeded to to sit down for three hours working on her photos.

    3. Phase three accomplished today by teaching her the basics of processing her jpeg photos through

    Camera The best camera is the one you have with you.
    AUTO, Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority or Manual - Never shoot in Full Auto. It give you no control at all and you might as well just use your cell phone. Program is a good place to start with when you first get your camera and for everyday shooing. You get more control than most ...
