I picked up my camera to learn (rather than just snap) for the first time in a long time. Sadly, I didn't do too well. Today is quite bright outside, with a few really large, fluffy clouds. I set my camera onto P and adjusted the focus myself. The most obvious problem I found with my images was under-.
I have started following the course here and I also have myself a copy of "Digital Photography Best Practices and Handbook". However, I wonder... how do I know what settings to use when I'm out "in the field" shooting? It's easy to see where I've gone wrong when I get home and upload them to the PC, and in a few situations I can go back and reshoot some subjects, but that's not going to work often.
