So I think my camera decided to play an April Fools day joke on me. Ok, I can’t really blame it on my camera, so I’m asking all of you for help today.
On my way to church I saw the sun trying to break through the clouds and it looked beautiful! There was a little color, but it was more the shape and contrast in the clouds that grabbed my attention. So I pulled over and put my camera up to my eye and fired off a few shots, adjusting the exposure some between each shot. Some looked good on the LCD so I felt happy all day ‘knowing’ I had captured a great shot I could use here.
But when I got home and uploaded them, I was thoroughly unimpressed. Even with spending over 30 min trying to tweak them to bring out what I remembered seeing, I feel like I missed the shot in some way, or messed it up when capturing it.
So, can you give me some tips on how to either fix it, or get it right in camera next time? The first shot is straight from the camera, the last is tweaked and converted to black and white (not really happy with it). Thanks.
