Fun with Photography

(Harbert, Michigan) Thanks to my friend and fellow photographer, Sue Krusack, I can now operate my Canon PowerShot SX 160 IS digital camera to greater effect.  Meaning, Sue showed me a nifty adjustment or three on the LIVE setting on the dial.  Make it darker; make it more vivid, or go from cool to warm.  Have fun.  And I have.  Then, of course, there is the good, old-fashioned AUTO setting to which I have grown accustomed.  LIVE or AUTO? Or, why not one of each? And that is just what I did last evening when I scrambled down to our beach to catch what I hoped would be a spectacular sunset. Well, a cloud bank blocked the sun, but I got these shots instead, of the exact same view no less.  What do you think?

A warm and vivid view with the LIVE setting.

Then cool and blue on full AUTO.  Photography is fun, ain't it?

  1. I like both. I think the warm setting of live would be good in the fall.

  2. I like warm much better. The clouds the light are beautiful and full of texture in the warm version. The boats look like a giant upside down spoon in the warm version to me. That made me smile. 🙂
