Lanie at the Christ Episcopal Church Parking Lot Fund Raiser

Lanie is helping out at the Church Cider Days Parking Lot Youth Group  Fund Raiser. She’s also performing at Cider Days with the Little Mermaid cast. I grabbed this shot when I dropped her off this morning.

I’m very lucky to get this picture. I made a fundamental mistake when I last used the camera; I didn’t reset it back to a ‘ready to shoot’ mode when I’d finished with it. I ought to have realized there was something wrong and checked everything when the shutter didn’t fire because it was set on ‘remote’.

I’d been using the camera yesterday to test a new lens and tripod mount (more on that another day). One of the tests was to switch over to manual focus. Luckily it was just right for this picture.

My default settings: ISO400, F8, 1/80sec. Manual Control, White Balance A, Short Burst Shutter Release, Auto Focus on, Vibration Reduction off.
