ive got a lot to learn

Postby Ray C » Tue Jan 22, 2013 7:01 pm

Hi all

I decided to give my new Sony NEX-7 with 18-55 lens an outing at woodford,
I chose the suject of XM603 with 18-55 useing finally the by 10 magnification.

Quite clearly i have the camera set up all wrong [pay for some lessions req'd]
the max shot is a total "Whiteout" shame as the shot taken correctly would have
been potentially quite nice of her in the sunshine.

Please tell me your thoughts..... ~x(

Start by reading the set up pages in the manual, then use the camera in one of the auto modes and if you have the time, start to experiment with various settings and keep note of what works and what doesn't.

After a while you will learn what is a good starting point for your pictures in any given situation.

There is no simple answer that will fit every occaision.

Get out and practice.

Good luck. ;)
