I had a great time hanging out and catching up with people at Windycon this weekend!
I’ve posted 40some pics on Facebook and Flickr. I was trying to push myself beyond using the automated settings. Most of these were taking with me manually playing with the shutter speed. Lessons learned…
- White balance is my nemesis. I tried to adjust it, but only made things worse, so most of these were on the auto white balance setting, with color correction in Photoshop.
- What looked about right on the LCD on the camera ended up being a wee bit overexposed when I pulled the pics up on the computer.
- Almost all of these were taken with the flash off. Partly because the flash can be annoying, and partly because those pics tend to look washed out, and lose a lot of shadows.
- Stage lighting is my other nemesis.
To those of you at Windycon, I hope I wasn’t making a pest of myself. I’m having a lot of fun hauling the camera around, and I’m trying to be considerate and polite with folks, but if I ever get annoying or obnoxious about it, I hope you’ll let me know.
And now, a few of my favorite pics from the weekend…

I avoid using flash whenever possible for these very reasons.
