First Pictures with the Sony a6000

In September 2015, Laurie and I purchased a Sony a6000 camera - it is a mirrorless, APS-C, interchangeable lens system, with an electronic viewfinder and modes that support everything from fully automatic to complete manual operation. We didn't know how to use it, so I bought Tony Northrup's book Stunning Digital Photography in order to start learning.  We took a trip which included a visit with Eric in Virginia that October, and went to the National Mall on a beautiful day...

f/8, 1/320s, 16mm, ISO 100

At this point I was still shooting JPEG, and "editing" in Picasa.   Edits were largely just cropping the images.  The photo above has been center-cropped down to 65% of its original size.

On that same trip, while visiting Laurie's dad in Ft. Meyers, Florida, we drove through J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge.

We'll Heed the Sign

In California, we stopped and visited Laurie's mom, Katie, and her husband, Dick.  The overcast day provided nice even lighting.
