    Shooting in full manual mode today for the first time ever

    I saw this little hummingbird in our holly bush and had to get my camera and shoot in Manual mode. I have been wanting to try Manual mode, but just don't think I was ready until today. I also wanted to edit the RAW image with a editing program that I have been wanting to use. I use Linux OS...

    Testing my new macro extension tubes

    I got some cheap macro extension tubes & was over at the in-law's house with my camera, and got a couple of shots. The first shot is a new little solar fountain that my mother-in-law just put in the bird bath. I got an interesting effect with the sun light & the water spray. And this is a...

    Shooting the moon
