I wasn't sure if it would be appropriate to spam the picture of the day thread with like 20 pictures, and I need a place to spam like 20 pictures on a semi-regular basis, so how does a photography thread sound?
My buddy bailed on me today so I walked over to the park and took some pictures. I think all but one of these were shot in aperture priority, and manual focus. The bits of garbage were more interesting than I would have guessed.
That was the best one I could get of my neighbour's dog, Polly. Apparently she didn't like the camera, she kept barking and walking away from me.
Here are a few more from the last week or so. First off, my buddy and a hot dog.
This one was weird, but I thought it came out pretty cool. I was trying to get a shot of the tower against the sky, but they were all really over-exposed and pretty much all white. It was just after noon. So I tried dropping the ISO to 100, running the aperture low (I think around 20) and doing a fast shutter speed. I don't think I did any post-processing to this.
