It was the first Sunday of August yesterday. As we’ve been doing on the first Sunday of every month, I headed out with one of my lower-end cameras in an attempt to capture some great images without getting too bogged down in the technical aspects. This month, I brought my D3100 with the 50mm f/1.8G lens. The D3100 isn’t exactly a low-end camera, but it hasn’t been getting much love in the SnapChick house lately because I’ve been so consumed with my newer cameras. It was time to take it out for a spin!


I went to the Arizona Science Center! It was dark in most of the exhibits, so I really got to stretch the D3100’s capabilities. I used Aperture Priority and stuck to the wider apertures. I also used Auto-ISO and shot in JPEG Basic Small. I didn’t use Monochrome, so I ran all of the photos through Aperture and converted them there. I didn’t make any other changes!


Here’s a gallery of some of my shots…
