Moon moon moon, shining bright

After a quick set-up, I was able to capture this image of the giant moon. Not bad for a simple DSLR. But this is why you need to use your manual settings. You can get incredible pictures, but not if you rely on the automatic modes to do it for you. Just bought yourself a thousand dollar camera? Then it's time to invest in a basic course on how to use it. Most of these courses are offered at your local community colleges or even your local camera shops. Look around, it's well worth the hundred dollar investment. You'll have a lot more photos you're proud of and you'll be getting your money's worth out of your camera. You should also invest in a photo editing program like Lightroom or Photoshop Elements. But just remember kids, a fancy photo effect doesn't make a crappy photo good, it just makes it look like a crappy over-edited photo. {End rant.}
