First really warm night of the year, and I was out playing with my camera. I got a Nikon D80 over the winter, and have been really enjoying learning how it works and such. I recently bought a tripod too, so I can take some stable night shots.
This was taken about 11:00pm – that’s my 100+ year old oak tree in the foreground, and obviously the moon peeking out behind it. Out of about 25 shots with various settings, this was the best (I’m finding out that’s how it works with photography – you take 20+ shots to get that one killer shot).
I love this camera and tripod – I’ve pointed various crappy cameras at the night sky for years, and never got anything nice. First night out with this setup, and I get this (you can click it to make it bigger):
I’m a bit disappointed that the corner of the house, and the electrical wire are in it (lower left) – I suppose I could retouch them out, but that’s too much like work. This is what I saw, so this is what I shot. Yea, you pros are laughing that this shot impresses me, but I’m new at this – gimme some time 🙂
So what does this have to do with business and marketing? Nothing. It’s Friday night – time to relax!!
