Go Fish




Last Wednesday afternoon I was headed to Perry for an assignment. I usually go
what I refer to as the back way-out Moody Road onto Houston Lake. Less traffic and much prettier scenery.

As I passed passed Houston Lake I looked over toward the boat ramps. I always do, never know what you will see. Bright color caught my eye. Lawn chairs and large plastic buckets. The overcast sky just made them pop.

I didn't have time to stop, so I was hoping the fishermen would still be there after my assignment was done.

I came back later and found Demorie Ellington and his fiance Lindsey Royal fishing. My first shot was with a telephoto, tried from 200mm to 500 and it just didn't work. I moved in with my wide angle and got the shot of Demorie casting.

My original assignment was to photograph Kim Greer at Go Fish. Glad this one didn't get away.

I just got a new, Nikon D40x, and I'm wondering what I can do to take full advantage of the camera. I want to use all of the features, but I'm not quite sure what they mean. I've read the manual, but it's a little dry and doesn't do a good job of explaining what is what.
Can you recommend any exercises I can do to get familiar with my new camera?

After reading the manual, try these online tutorials:

and

then get out and start shooting, take a notebook along and record your exposures, type light, and other bits of info relating to your shots. This way you know what you have done when you view your images.
