Sunday July 5, 2009
I wouldn't really call this a picture post like in the past, because I only have one photo.
I put a guitar next to my recliner so that I am reminded to pick it up and play some every day.
I long ago realized I'll never be Eddie Van Halen, but I do like to play, and practice is the only way to get better.
At a certain time of each morning the light comes through one of our skylights to "my" area.
The new camera body I bought, a Nikon D90, has a CMOS technology image sensor, and they just flat-out handle low light situations with much better ability than the CCD image sensors in 99 percent of digital cameras, including my older Nikon D70s.
This photo was taken at the equivalent of having used a film rated at ISO 1600. Any film made that has that rating would be very grainy.
To get this kind of smooth image quality in a digital camera set at ISO 1600 is miraculous to me.
I'm definitely going to be loving this camera.
Once I digest the humongous user manual for this thing, I'll get out and take some photos and start posting again like I've been wanting to.
God bless you all, and have a great Sunday.
