    I am the exact opposite. I have friends who are constantly asking me, " here let me take a photo of you in front of X". I hate having my photo taken, I'm not photogenic. My face flattens in photos and it looks awful. So I stay behind the camera.

    Here are some photos taken while camping.

    ND or TV?

    In case youre not Canon TV is time value AKA speed priority.

    Nice shots.

    Thanks.

    I'm Canon. Both Tv and a standard ND filter. I always shoot water in Tv or manual mode to get the slowest shutter speed. Everything else, I mostly shoot in Av (aperture value).

    I believe Nikon uses S or Sv rather than Tv.

    I started out in the 80's with a point and shoot film camera, then a SLR (Minolta X570) then went digital with point and shoots when I had kids. I got back into DSLR a couple of years ago, but my "lugging gear" muscles atrophied and I leave it home more often than not. I try to take unique pictures where we go with my phone.

    OOps. Just noticed this was in the 'photography' sub forum. I'd thought it was a question to all. I removed my earlier post on my preference on just capturing experiences/people.

    Carry on ;)
