The more I experiment with LR Presets, the more possibilities I see for my photos. I admit, I still feel a bit like it is cheating to apply a filter, but I have to admit the filters give my photos new life. Not all photos lend themselves to every (if any) filter. I see a big difference between non-filtered photos and filtered ones, though. The filtered ones, when done right, have that extra something I have been looking for in my photography for a long time.
No news is good news, so since I have not gotten any calls from Chrysler Camera Repair since I dropped off my lens yesterday, I will assume the diagnostic and repair process has not revealed any additional, more serious problems. I feel as though a part of me is gone, especially since I have not yet replaced my 50mm lens.
Now I have a test I need to do with my two flashes. One flash is fully automatic. The newer flash has a manual mode, though not one in which I can punch in the flash power. But it appears as though the newer flash doesn’t register with the camera body so well; the photos I made using it have "flash did not fire" in the metadata, which is not true. That may be because the lens was screwing up communications, though. I am going to test both flashes and see if either of them communicate correctly with the camera when using a functioning lens. I plan to use a flash for Sunday’s shoot with my sister—insert much squeeage here—and I don’t want any surprises when the day comes.
