Neon Tetras

Today, 02:51 AM

Got some pics of my Neons in the other 10 gallon tank. l set up the SB-80DX in manual mode fired with a wireless trigger. The flash was above the tank aimed down. Since l'm starting to shoot RAW, the flash output wasn't that important. But l made a major mistake-forgot to set up the D7100 for RAW+JPEG. Shot jpeg only!! So they were overexposed. Was going to shoot more, but when l realized it l had already broke down the flash setup-next time :-)

l don't have any new photos to process in the PS Elements 2019 l just installed, so l did some B&W conversions of images taken during the holidays.

Got PS Elements 2019 installed.

l got it when l ordered the Canon M50 about 3 weeks ago. Finally had time to get it installed. lt supports RAW files from all of my cameras. Elements 11 that l had only supported RAW from my older cameras. Just recently started to shoot RAW+JPEG. Before then l was a JPEG only shooter. Christmas day l was taking pics of Crystal. The first few images were shot in manual as l forgot to put camera in aperture priority. They were overexposed about 2 stops. The JPEGs were trashed but RAW saved the day. l was able to make them look good. When it comes to editing software, l'm slow and stubborn to change. l used Elements 11 from 2012 and used Elements 2.0 from 2005-2012 :-)

Mercer Botanical Gardens, Spring Texas

Canon FD 100mm 2.8 on M50

Went to Mercer Gardens today. l wanted some shallow DOF images so l took the old 100mm along with the 15-45 kit lens. l'm impressed with the images it delivers. Now i need to get a cheap adapter so l can use the Nikon 85 1.8D on it.
