032: #084 Empty

I guess I'd better go grocery shopping!

This blog gives me a push to learn more about my camera settings. For this shot I found flash compensation in the menus. No flash left the shadows too dark. Full flash was overexposed. But -1 on the flash compensation was just right. So I ate the eggs all up! (No, I'm not Goldilocks)

  2. Good take. And yup your right on the flash. I have a dedicated flash so I don't use the one on the camera. But I rarely use it on full flash and I always try to use a diffuser. I have a great (cheap) homemade one. I also bounce my light a lot. I have been working on better fill light with no shadows for several months now. Would love to share more if you want to e-mail me.

  4. I discovered Flash Compensation through this challenge, too! It's opening a world of camera settings I'd never explored before. What fun!

  5. You take some great shots. I don't get to visit every one every day, so it's a treat to come up on one with several excellent shots. Kayla is too cute (4yo is the PERFECT age!) And the wildlife shots, wow!

  6. I love your idea for empty - can't get much emptier than an egg shell.
