Since I absolutely need another hobby/pastime/project like I need a hole in the head, I’ve recently picked up my old(er) Canon Powershot SX170 IS camera to try and actually learn how to use it.
I ultimately want to take better (fishing) pictures with it by using the various settings correctly.
Since one of my goals is to write content for bass fishing-related media outlets, I know deep down that I had better be able to submit a good picture (or 2) along with even better writing.
While I’m working consistently on the writing, I know my photo-taking and photo-editing skills need some fine-tuning (to say the least).
Here are a couple of pictures (mostly of my brother’s boat, gear, and electronics) that I took with my Canon Powershot and (lightly) edited in Darktable (a free alternative to Adobe Lightroom).
As I said, my skills need a lot of work so I’m only shooting stills at this time before I try and move on to action-type shots (e.g., setting the hook, bass fighting/shaking, landing fish, etc).
Plus, I’ll have to set my own rod down and have the camera in hand more often if I want to capture those action shots.
All easier said than done!
