So, I am really playing with the exposure (and by playing, I mean learning through some massive fails!) because I can not wrap my little brain around the fundamentals here. I am finding that even though I am a very new beginner, I really like taking my pictures in manual. I feel like once I finally get it, I am going to love having the control over the look of the picture. Anyway, as I was playing today outside with the camera, I took these over-exposed pictures. I can't make myself trash them though, my untrained eye likes them for some reason.
and ps- no editing on these. I desperately need my "Missing Manual..." book on photoshop elements to get here asap.
