We actually had a nice day today. It was sunny and 55 so I went outside to take a few photos. Here is one of the better ones. I used Jess's actions again. I used the overexposed fix at 25% and the sharpen & web save.
Shutter Speed 1/1250
50mm 1.8 - 50mm
Last year at 2Peas there ran a 12 Weeks to Better Photos series. I tried to follow it with my old camera but with very little luck. So I gave up but I saved all of the PDFs knowing that one day I would get a dslr that I would need to learn all 12 lessons about. Here is the first lesson from that series. It was interesting seeing the differences in the backgrounds just by changing the f stop. Although I will have to keep practicing with this because I was not able to repeat this every time I tried it.
