Fly Fishing & Digital Photography

Don't Be A Prisoner to Auto Mode!

For me, understanding camera basics has been akin to being back in high school algebra. Brain freeze. That side of my brain was probably damaged when I was dropped as an infant. It has never computed for me. So, when I read about shutter speed, aperture, ISO setting and depth of field and realize they are interconnected my mind, at first quakes, then sighs in relief that there is an auto setting for my cameras.

I’m spoiled by nice mid-level cameras. But, is that going to teach me how to maximize the capabilities of the cameras/lens? Of course not. If you are like me, every little bit helps in the take me by the Manual Mode hand and teach me. Here is a good Digital Camera Tutorial site for the beginner that wants the cues on how  to experiment with confidence in that manual mode. So, if that creative streak hits you out there on the water or at the bench take a chance. Of course you can search down the right side of my blogroll for the true experts in fly fishing photography. Inspiring and exceptional work; they obviously excelled in algebra or weren’t dropped on their heads.

    good article, I do a fair amount of outdoor photography, and when I get onto a nice lake or stream or river, there are some great scenes to be photographed, which can lead to great pictures for calendar,postcards,or whatever. I go fishing and take pictures, giving me a very enjoyable day of peace and tranquility.

      Years ago, I could have never relaxed enough to look for photo ops around me. Now, it seems normal to look about as you walk, sit or even fish. Thanks for dropping by.
