I have only used the camera and Lightroom for a few weeks now. I haven't actually gone out on a picture quest and shot random buildings or wildlife. To my credit, though, I have kept the camera (Canon EOS Rebel XTi) on the manual setting so I would be forced to learn what the settings do. I know, how original, a close up of flowers... It was more to play with aperture and lighting. again, typical noob shots of the doggah. experimenting with Lightroom, I liked the colors. here is doggah (Ellie) in regular color for comparison. shot of my niece at her baptism. I know its sort of bad composition, but its impossible to shoot children, they hardly ever stand still for a second. I'm going to try and shoot the lunar eclipse tonight. let's see how that goes. go easy on me.
