Building on the last five posts or so, the next few days will be examples of photographs taken by following my technique (more-or-less). I’ll describe the situation, the settings, and then display a photo for the day.
Today, I start with a picture from last November. We were on vacation in Wailea, Maui. If you know about the area, you know how nice it is. The weather was unnaturally windy, though – rough for that area. It even rained one day! And by wind, I mean “light breeze.”
So here we are, in a beautiful area, but there are clouds. Spotty clouds, mostly sunny. Going down to the beach, I have the sd500 in the waterproof case. ISO is pre-set to 50, white balance to daylight, EV to -1/3. At the beach (same area as the image posted on April 5th), I noticed a rocky area to the south, and some rocks stacked up by (assumedly) the locals.
