34/365 Gas

Photobucket

Ah yes...the old fashioned gas pumps. I had the site all picked out and ready for my first senior session. She happened to be wearing the perfect outfit for the old, abandoned gas station and I badly overexposed the 7 shots I took in that location. I wanted to cry when I uploaded my cards! I had been so excited about finally using this spot that I just clicked, clicked, clicked without checking the exposure! Even shooting RAW, the images could not be repaired. Oh well...


Lesson: Always be aware of your camera settings, especially if you're on manual!

Tomorrow: Something orange.

Oh, I hate it when that happens. I did that with fading light and an AV setting. The shutter slowed down so all of these amazing shots were blurry. I was sooo disappointed. Lessson learned. I now am constantly checking my shutter speed. Your lego station is cool :o)

Aw, I'm sorry that happened. I have done that quite a few times. I get too excited too. I love your little gas station though.
