Spouse and I went out to the barn where Ralphie lives today. I brought along my camera and while I was standing next to one of the fields, two horses started fighting with one another. Flush with the excitement of photo-journalism, I sprung into action and got to actually use my “burst mode” (the thing that makes that cool autowinder sound) in an effort to capture the epic battle between Quest and….well, a horse whose name I don’t know. I was feeling pretty good about getting the pictures and I was admiring my handiwork on the little LCD display on the rear of my camera when the horses actually reared up at each other. I guess I’m not quite ready for Time Magazine just yet.
I bought this circular polarizing filter a few weeks back. I was given to understand that the filter would assist me to make my skies more deeply blue. I am reasonably certain that I need to rotate the filter slightly to get the enhanced colour effect, but I can’t figure out how to determine when the effect is being applied. Am I supposed to just eyeball it through the little viewfinder and notice the difference? There must be a better way, right?
