We all make mistakes,...

For instance, tonylong said here: http://photography-on-the.net …hp?p=6254370&po​stcount=49

Heh! When I read the first post here, I just figured "what a dork", but I can see that there is some serious discussion going on!

Lets hope that the Title Fairy doesn't get a hold of that one? :D

Tony, that title fairy must be already playing with your head. Your title is the name of an Austin Powers movie.

Heh! You're right! Hmmm...maybe I should ask the Title Fairy to just let well enough alone:)!

Actually I was suggesting that Anke do the test. I want to hold onto my Goldmember title, and I'm afraid that if I tried a test like that and posted my results the outcome would be, well, questionable:)!

I didn't understand the hand mode either until Wed night when I got a chance to shoot with PhotoGuy and he explained it to me. I learn better when I can see it and do it instead of reading it all. My neighbor wants me to shoot some pictures of his family this weekend and he knows that I'm just beginning on this but he still trusts me enough after seeing some of the pictures I've taken since working with PhotoGuy.

Would one of you explain why would anyone shoot their hand?

then shoot a scene?

I do this when I bracket my shots. Shoot my hand before I start my bracket shots and then shoot my hand after. Just so I know when and where those shot starts and ends,, to noobish for me, lol.

Just in case you haven't observed, you've helped a thread dead 3 years ago rise from its grave. :)
