My first cheap camera lasted about a year. And now it’s been about a year since I bought my second cheap camera. I don’t suppose I’ll ever have a Canon (like some people), but I’m very thankful for my cheap little camera. These photos are from February of last year, enjoy. 🙂

  1. I’ve meant to ask what camera you use. The depth of color in your sky shots is amazing. Do you do any post processing? I’ve been using the crappy camera on my phone and it has editing software built in to make them a little less crappy.

    • So, you’re gonna make me get up and go look to see what brand my camera is? Fine, just a sec…

      It’s a Sony with 20.1 megapixels. I think my other camera had about half that, but I don’t remember. I do all this research before I buy something, then after I buy it, I forget it all. 🙂

      There are different effects you can use with the camera, like black and white with red highlights. There’s a few others that I’ve tried, but didn’t think they were that great. I always use the “Pop” function, which makes the colors brighter. But that effect doesn’t like reds and oranges too much, so sometimes I switch back to normal. I think there’s also a function where you can make more of your own choices, but I don’t know how it works. It does get a little frustrating when I can’t focus on what I want to focus on, which is why I do a lot of cropping.

      Are you bored yet? 🙂

  2. “It is the photographer who makes the picture, not the camera.” I don’t remember who said that, but from this point of view it really doesn’t matter what camera you own. Technology in the camera bodies is developing fast, just like computers do. Every year they are replaced with newer models. What counts is that it suits you and that you are content with the results.
    What your camera does here when you say “pop” is pushing the mid-tones, I suppose. Anyway, I love your clouds!

      • Nope. Think of the histogram. All the dark tones = shadows on the left side, all the bright tones = highlights on the right side. In between you’ll find the mid-tones. Lifting them up in the histogram with curves or levels increases the vibrancy without touching hi- or low-lights. In Lightroom e. g. the slider “clarity” does exactly what you achieve in your camera.
