I chickened out
Today, we took the kids to a nearby Aquarium. I packed my D300, but at the last minute, I brought my D50 (with the 50mm lens attached), as well.
Well when we got to the aquarium, I pulled out the D50. I always fall to that camera because of the Auto mode. I did start out in Aperture Mode, but it was taking too long for me to figure out what I needed everything on. Since 1) the kids and husband don't like waiting for me and 2) I get very self-conscience around people, I didn't feel like fumbling around figuring out the settings. So in Auto mode it went and the whole time I carried the D300 in my bag which isn't very light.
Here are some shots in Auto mode without the flash (most displays ask that you not use your flash)
A fish, not leaf
And I am sure we aren't the first ones to find Nemo :)
The coloring is really really bad. I really need to finish up these lessons and practice practice practice, so I don't feel self-conscience about changing my settings around people.
