Snow on a Pine

One of the first pictures I took with my camera today. The lot of them were very washed out, very "midtoney" or low in contrast. I bumped the contrast on this one up a bit, made it a tad darker, and slid around some of the colors.

It's nothing spectactular, that's for sure.

  1. I have the same problem with my D70, the pictures just don't look all that spectacular. They are eith dull or washed out beyond belief. I am not impressed with these "pro" DSLRs. I'd rather stick with film and just scan the negs.

  2. I don't think it's the camera's fault. It was a cloudy day with lots of snow. I think the white balance is just a bit off-kilter, and that's easily corrected once you know what you're doing.

    I'm pretty sure the dSLRs aren't really intended for the point & shoot crowd. They may have full auto modes, but that doesn't mean they're supposed to be used that way most of the time.

  3. It took me about half a year to get good pictures in nearly all situations (and that involves waiving sheets of paper in front of the flash, using autotimer to avoid having to hold the camera in dark places, etc). Just practice, they will get much better.
