Have to start somewhere. Shoot, shoot, evaluate results, shoot, shoot, evaluate and learn... Easy and inexpensive these days with digital. Quite pricey in the past with film development costs. Enjoy your new approach :)
Thanks! I'm excited to go out and practice some more with it. A nice hobby to take up over this lockdown.
Aren’t we all. I can remember taking photos of fence posts and playing with the exposure settings to see what the controls did. All part of the learning process.
Haha, yeah. Currently I'm shooting in full auto mode, but I should definitely play with the manual settings some more.

Had the opportunity on Monday to finally get up to the hills for a spot of Autumnal colour fix, but they are almost all gone already. Unfortunately the botanic gardens have been closed for a while due to this pesky Virona Cirus thing! It gave me a chance to test my new (to me) Sony a7III, but it looks like the 28-70mm kit lens is a tad soft in parts. I don't mind that though, I never have been a pixel-peeper!

I hope everyone is keeping safe & well, wherever you are. I stepped away from social media & the like for a while to concentrate on my photography, the Mindful Photography groups I hold & have ended up learning documentary film-making as a result of the urban exploring I do. I did a series of photographic explorations of places out in the country & after chatting to the owners about what had happened for these gorgeous places to become abandoned I discovered an interest in the stories behind them as well. Fenna, my Assistance Dog just turned two yesterday, she's beautiful & enables me to live well with my CPTSD.

Wonderful to hear from you again, Alex, and to know that things are going OK for you :)

You must share some photos of Fenna now she's probably nearly grown up ;)

Cheers :)
