I have a nice long lens now- as seen by the wildlife shots that I have been taking lately, and just picked up a wide angle lens too. Add that to the SUPER in between lens that I own and I have a nice set up.... though I am eyeing a few others as well. Learning all this is quite a challenge. I relied on automatic settings a lot over the years, and the last 6 - 9 months I have been pushing myself to go fully manual. Then with that new information appears and I find out things I never knew about- and so I have a host of other exposure and focusing things to learn and it makes me a little overwhelmed. I have gotten some amazing shots with this camera, but I am never happy with them completely.
Then there is this Lightroom business. Wow that is quite an awesome editing program, says Ms. Captain Obvious. But again- learning curve!! Thank heaven for YouTube.
Anyway, I am glad that I have had a variety of experiences to capture lately and I will do a lot of practicing on my new skills and acquiring more info that should serve me when I go to Italy in a month... ( SQWEEEEEEE- 32 DAYS!!!)
