As a part of my class on Introduction to Digital Photography at Decordova, I spent sunset at one of my favorite fields in Lincoln, MA across from the Codman Farms estate. The hard part of a new camera is learning to master the suite of buttons and dials, and a Canon EOS 20D has no shortage of those. Soon it should be second nature to judge the best ISO, shutter speed, and aperature. Most of these photos were taken at ISO 400 for increased light sensitivity, and shutter speeds of 1/60 to 1/100 with wide aperatures of F4.5 to 5.6 for better depth of field. Having control over the depth of field is one the most compelling reasons to use a SLR rather than a point and shoot model. Check it out.
