Went to the zoo yesterday for some practice shots but it started raining pretty quickly. Thoughts on this original/edit?
A few other things that came up:
-With the histogram should I be trying to get it as close to the right as possible without hitting the right side or just making sure it doesn't hit the right side (blowing out the whites I think) then editing later?
-Is it fine to walk around in auto mode, especially as a newb?
-Is using AUTO ISO a bad idea?
-Is using a laptop as the only backup fine? Ie moving photos from CF card onto laptop and removing from CF card. I will have a 32 GB card and 2 16 GB cards so that should be about 6400 photos. Maybe keep ones that are likely good on CF card and backup and ones that are meh just backup and delete from card.
-For action I should be using shutter priority, continuous mode, and AF sensor mode where you can choose the sensor?
-For still I should be using the "S" mode and auto AF sensor?
-Best situations to use aperture priority vs. shutter priority?
-Any suggestions for post processing? I have no idea what I'm doing and just went into Lightroom and fooled around with random things till I thought it looked a bit better. Any specific Lightroom features to either use a lot or not usually mess with?
