I had a chat with a friend today who was very, very helpful about my fledgling photography skills. I've been having quite a bit of trouble with reds. They would flare out and overwhelm the entire photo. It turns out there is something called "exposure bias" and mine was way off.
I've still got a lot to learn, but after a 15 minute conversation I have a really good idea where to get the information I'm looking for. Yay! Thanks J!
I'll be buying a new camera soon - very soon, I hope - so I also got some valuable advice about what equipment might be good to start out with.
