Default First time picture posting

This will be my first picture posting to the forums. I live in a VERY boring city in Iowa with no wildlife near me or even flowers at this time of year so I don't have a lot to take pictures of. 1 and 2 are so-so, just me messing around. I am proud of #3 however. It makes my pup look very distinguished. 4 is kind of neat though.

Excellent water drop picture. I assume you cranked the shutter speed to the max and had good light.

With long lenses you want to be using a tripod and remote shutter release or timed shutter release so that there isn't any movement.

I did a bit of a thread a year ago about shooting the moon http://forums.steves-digicams.com/ph...technique.html

Sadly.... or funny depending on your way of looking at it, that was just in P mode of water on a plate in my kitchen sink with the shade above the sink open.

It took 6 or 7 tries but i got it.

The moon picture I had to turn spot metering on when i took it. I also had to hold manual focus down when the moon was right in the middle, or it wouldn't focus on it right. The one I took was hand held also, as I've been too cheap to buy a tripod so far.

Also, as far as mark1616's idea's go for the moon shooting, that is what I tried to put my camera on when I took them, as well as spot metering/manual focus.

The camera in that post looks as good for beating off muggers as well as taking pictures. It gives me a hernia just looking at it. lol.
