After taking a class in “Canon Digital Single Lens Reflex” photography yesterday, I know just enough to be dangerous. The camera store where I bought my camera on Tuesday offers a couple of classes, which were one of the main reasons why I bought the camera there rather than online. I could have saved about $170 in sales tax, but I wanted the local support.

Yesterday was a great day to be indoors, because the weather has turned dark and rainy and cold. But I just couldn’t remain inside today.

Last night I was studying some online photographs that Doug Goodin took. He is a local photographer who I met last week. Some of his best work was in obviously lousy weather. Like today.

So at sunrise I drove up to Flagstaff Mountain, just three or four miles from here. I was searching for the place where he took one of his best photographs. But snow was on the ground and visibility was nil.

I settled on shooting here, like this photo of my apartment.

The amazing thing to me about these photographs is that I took them at a setting of ISO 3200 (except the crystal, which is ISO 1250). With my earlier cameras I almost never shot above ISO 400 because the digital noise was so obvious.

When the rain stopped this afternoon, I went back up Flagstaff Mountain. This is a moody shot like I think Doug Goodin would have taken.
