Justin and I went to the park today with Renee, Payton, and Logan. The trees are FINALLY starting to flower, and so I practiced shooting on manual a little bit. I'm used to a ghetto old camera, and I still haven't really gotten the feeling of the new one yet. I find it a little cumbersome to change the aperture, etc. with the Rebel XS. Here's the weird thing--I can NOT for the life of me make my straight-out-of-the-box camera and lens go to anything below F-5. Am I losing my mind? I should be able to go down to at least 1.2 in Manual mode even with the basic 18-55mm lens, right?
Anyway--this picture is a little blown out, but I really like the look of it even straight out of the camera. I don't think I'd do a single edit to it in Photoshop!
