Re: Reassuring_Hands

Frank, I love your images and study them. I think you tend toward the light side while I tend toward the dark, so I can learn from you to bring balance to my photos. If you can remember, [highlight]what did you focus on to set exposure?[/highlight] Thanks. Matt Hey Matt, to be honest, that's the wr...

I see a dolphin having target practice with an avocado. Matt
Damn, and I thought I was making this hard!

Re: Reassuring_Hands

Wow, what a wonderfully caught moment of sibling (?) tenderness. I love the framing, the play of the reflections in the wet sand, the overall toning. The thing that really catches my eye is there seems to be something funky going on behind the boy's legs. Some kind of artifacting. I really like this...

Re: My new challenge: shooting in manual only.

Speaking of manual and priority modes... here is a slide from my lecture on Understanding Exposure I think fits in with this discussion.
The three columns are ISO, Aperture and Shutter respectively.

Re: how to change the world

"Change the world, one act of random kindness at a time." Great quote by a great actor. My favorite quote is still the one I use myself all the time; "If you didn't learn something new today, you wasted the day." No one has the potential to love you more than you love yourself.
