Landscape Monday


Photo week is BACK! This time Steph is hosting and she chose the auto-settings as the theme. Monday means Landscape.

According the the CD that cake with my camera, Landscape mode will turn off the flash, enhance greens and blues, increase contrast and it will focus on the closest object. So I wanted to go out and take some pictures that could benefit from this setting.

After my afternoon outside, I decided that I don’t like landscape mode on my camera that much. In fact I might consider using it for my food pictures in the future since the flash gets turned off. I didn’t feel like it enhanced the color of the sky very much…

That being said, here are my landscape pictures. I went to a local park to take these pictures. Enjoy! Be sure to tune in tomorrow for Macor Tuesday.


Willow trees and a park bench.


I love how bright the blue is in this picture.


Hidden walkway from the back of the park up to a main road. Hubby and I found this shortcut after living here over a year!

    What a great post! So informative! I have a Nikon D40x but have still not read the entire manual! I will try this this week as many of my pictures are taken at nighttime too.

    This is an awesome installment. I have the D60 and am still learning by playing with it. Excellent tutorial, thanks so much!

    Great info! Unfortunately my Canon doesn’t have a flash adjustment, but tomorrow I’m going to post about the world’s cheapest diffuser I made for it… can’t wait for the next topic! 🙂

    I am clearly almost 7 months late commenting on this post but I just came across it 🙂 I wanted to share a little trick with you. (My photographer friend shared it with me) All you need is your camera and a white paper plate. Just cup the paper plate right in front of the pop up flash (which should be popped up obviously)and take the picture. The paper plate bounces the light up and off the ceiling preventing the horrible washout of items in the front and darkening of items in the back. I also find that setting up a white piece of poster board right behind the object and then using this little bounce trick really helps. Happy picture taking!
