I feel like I’m finally starting to ‘get it’ in regard to camera settings on Manual mode. This morning on my drive in to work, I kept my camera on my lap. When I had to sit at a red light, I picked it up and took a photo of my surroundings, making adjustments as needed. The sunrise was very pretty and since I’ve never had the chance to shoot in the morning yet, I thought this would be good practice. I admit that it’s not perfect yet, but at least I’m on my way!
I was hoping to get stuck at a particular red light because there’s this old church with beautiful ornate architecture that I want to photograph. Wouldn’t you know it, I made that green light today. There’s always tomorrow. This is the sunrise this morning.
I underexposed this photo in post process editing and worked it a bit to sharpen and pump up the colors. Focal length 52mm, f/9, 1/4000, ISO 100.
See you on the other side of the lens.
