I will also use this blog to document using Linux and Open Source tools. I will share some of the things I learn as I use these tools that are generously offered up by the community of open source developers.
Here are a few shots I have taken in the last few days with it.
I went to Tinker Falls near Labrador Hollow last night, on my way home from work. I took a ton of pictures, but only a few turned out nice. I'll be making another trip there in the near future when the sun is out a little more. When I was about to take one of the last few shots, I saw in the corner of my eye the little 'L' on the LCD display that indicates the picture quality. I fully intended from the very beginning, even before I had my camera in hand, to shoot in Raw+JPEG mode. I don't like the idea of losing all the information from the image sensor when shooting just JPEGs, even though the camera creates better JPEGs from the RAW images than I can right now. It would be nice to be able to go back to some of these photos in the future and do some more post processing work. Oh well.
I took these in my yard this morning before work.
I took this with the 'Nifty Fifty' lens the day I received my camera. It's my mom's Suzuki Savage.
I'm always open to critique on the photos I post.
