Premature February Spring
Tuesday 25 February 2014 — Category: Shooting
Lightroom, I was very disappointed to discover that all of the photos seemed out of focus.
When I looked at the settings on my Fujifilm FinePix F900EXR camera, I found that it was set to aperture-priority mode, with the ISO locked at 100. Because there was not enough light outside, the camera was forced to use a slow shutter speed, resulting in images which were not as sharp as they should have been.
So when I took my walk this morning, I decided to retrace my steps and photograph the same subjects again, but this time with a floating ISO to ensure that the shutter speed would be fast enough. I was very pleased with the today’s results, which turned out much better than yesterday’s. If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!
Oregon’s Willamette Valley is in the grips of a false premature spring. The temperatures are fairly mild, the sun is shining, and flowers are blossoming. But don’t be fooled by all that — winter is far from over. It’s not unusual to have snow in April! But for now, the unseasonal weather is providing some great photo ops!
