I got out with the new camera today and found many willing subjects as well as many not so willing, including some nice bucks! This is my first try at editing picture taken with the new camera. critiques are very welcome!

Congratulations on the new camera. Looks like all of these were shot in the program mode, or landscape mode. The camera will try and make the proper decisions for you based on the lighting.

The flash fired in a number of these shots because the light levels were low. The reason a few of these were underexposed is because your on board flash is only strong enough to reach out around 12' - 15'. The first deer shot and the one standing in the field are located outside the range of the flash so they ended up being a bit underexposed.

Its great to use all these modes on your camera to get familiar with what they each do. Your manual will be a good guide for you as well. Eventually you will get more comfortable and will find you use Av, Tv or Manual to try and take more control over what your camera is doing.

For now enjoy and take photos! Spend a bit of time looking at each of your shots and try and see what the camera was trying to do you will learn a lot.

If you take a look at the top of the forum you will find a sticky on photo basics that has some good information on getting started, especially with a DSLR. Photography basics here Good luck and keep shooting!

Good advice from Dan.

As far as composition goes, I really like the abandoned building. The setting and the lighting are excellent, and the turkey shot is great, too.

My fave is the last coon shot - good composition. One tip I'd like to mention is, when shooting wildlife, always lock focus on the eyes. If the eye is sharp, the rest of the photo will normally look good.

Thanks for the advice guys! I shot these all in auto and tried to touch them up a bit with editing software. I need some practice with the different settings before I try using them on live subjects that are not too interested in standing around while i try to adjust the settings! I think I will practice on still objects first.

sfg, you've just given yourself the best advice there is. You'll move on to different settings once you get the hang of them. smilesmile

Just keep having fun! gringrin

I really like the abandoned building, what a beautiful area. Depending on what is to the left and right of it that place might be a great subject for a panoramic shot, take a couple more and stitch them all together.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .

    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
