this is my first try with this, and mark has giving me some awesome advice.

i was trying the shutter mode, actually my first time. many came out over exposed until i figured how to correct the aperture. i guess you need to sort these things out before hand!! hahahahahahahaha

Hi John,

Nicely done, it looks like after you sorted out the teething problems that you have got some good photos here. What was the reason for the over exposure as I've had a look at the exif and I thought it was going to be because the ISO was too high meaning that the aperture could not be stopped down enough but that does not seem to be the case. The only other thing I could see was you were using spot metering which if it picked up on something very dark such as black leathers then it would cause over exposure. Personally I would go for evaluative metering or centre weighted depending on the background. If the light was consistent and you were feeling confident with trying more settings then manual would mean that the exposure would not be effected by the differing bike/leather colours.

I hope you are happy with these and had good fun taking them.

Mark

hi mark,

thank you! yes i am happy with these, i have never really used shutter mode except to take pics of the moon and the camera was on a tripod. so i never really learned how to adjust the aperture along with it, and since i didn't prepare in advance. i was rushing to get the shots and fooling with the settings. but i will get the hang of it. my little guy went with me, we had a blast! and mark with all sincerity thank you. and now like you say its time to pactice, practice, & practice!!
