There is no new recipe today. I'm just posting to try out new settings on the Blog. Like the way readers see the emails about new posts.
Previously, the entire blog post would show up in your inbox. Now, I'm trying out a new setting so only the first picture and some of the text will show. I don't know if it'll work, but lets see.
Also, I've been practicing taking pictures in Manual Mode. It's still scary, but I'm getting better.
The pictures on the last post were all taken in Manual Mode, I think they came out better than previous tries.
Also, I've been trying new Lightroom Presets that I found online a few weeks ago. Although, they're not perfect (they need a few adjustments), they were free and very useful. I used the one called 'nostalgia', as well as sharpening the overall picture since I always shoot RAW.
Let me know what you think!

As requested by a reader, the settings on Manual Mode are:
-first picture: ISO 400, f/2.5, 1/640
-second picture: ISO 400, f/2.5, 1/1250
-third picture: ISO 400, f/3.2, 1/800
It was a very sunny day, with very few clouds, between 2:00 and 4:00 pm.
