Enjoying your Camera
Photograph of a Sunset in Big Bear, California
Most digital cameras have settings that can enhance your shot, I use a Nikon Coolpix. For this particular photograph I used the Sunset setting. This photo has NOT been altered in Photoshop. I did zoom so as not to catch the buildings and power lines that would have taken away from this shot. Don't be afraid to explore your settings, nowadays with digital photography you can simply delete the picture if you don't like it. Use your manual and get to know your camera. Take your camera for a hike or on a special early morning drive to practice closeup or landscape mode. Try using various modes for both early and late in the day including getting to know your flash. Believe me even the tiniest flower can have such power when taking a closeup into the deep inner feathery middle, pure spiral beauty. Explore and enjoy your surroundings, it will make you smile!
