Thread: Kincaide Moose

    Default Kincaide Moose

    These are a few weeks old. I have a Canon Rebel with the standard 18-55mm lens. Not too happy with it, actually. Really need to invest in a better lens. Obviously the last one was not taken with my camera.







    Thank God for people who don't fish!! Not much would get done without them =)

    Excellent job. There is nothing wrong with the kit lens. I have taken some very nice shots with the XT and that lens.

    Buy an external hard drive, and also a DVD burner (these don't cost very much at SAM's these days), and also PSE6 (PhotoShop Elements 6), and set the camera to RAW images only. Then process the RAW photos using PSE6, which offers several features that are very nice for developing the RAW images. For example, you can increase: the clarity, exposure, blacks, fill light, etc., of the images before they open on your screen, and then save them to an external hard drive, and also to DVDs. Also, if you happen to take a photo on the wrong White Balance (WB), you can take care of the problem when you process it with PSE. I place the images in a folder, and then save them when the total amounts to several GB's, just enough to fit in a DVD.

    Forgot to mention: I only save the ones I believe are good or important photos, not the rest.

    I agree, the 18-55mm lens is a good one. I used one for a long time. My comment was in regards to using the 18-55mm lens ...that you must have been pretty close for such a short focal length. Again, really nice shots.
