What we've learned so far...
...Light comes in all colors and you need to tell your camera what color it is.
...you can add light using an electronic flash.
...since your camera can't record a very great range of contrast, you can use a graduated neutral density filter to help bring the contrast into a range that can be captured for landscape pictures.
...tripods and other devices can help take sharper pictures.
...be careful when shooting at shutter speeds of 1/15 - 1 second.
...YOU control depth of field if you use "aperture priority" or "manual" exposure modes on your camera. This technique can make or break a picture!
...use the right lens for the right result. Use wide-angle lenses for landscapes; short telephoto for people; and long telephoto for wildlife.
...zoom lenses can save space, weight and cost but beware of the low-end and "do it all" zoom lenses.
