Whether or not you hate it, or lost sleep, a good chunk of the US and Europe has to deal with daylight savings time. Being that summer is coming it’s time to turn the clock forward an hour on your cameras, and fix any metadata for photos taken since then.

Canon
  • Press Menu
  • Use the right arrow / af button until you reach the second settings wrench tab
  • Use down button to select Date/Time
  • Press set to select
  • Use the right button to reach the sun for daylight savings time
  • Press set to select
  • Use down button to turn on daylight savings time
  • Press set to confirm
Daylight savings time is on (spring forward one hour)
Daylight savings time is off (fall back one hour)

 

Nikon
  • Press Menu
  • Press down to wrench/settings tab
  • Press down to go to Daylight saving time
  • Press right to turn daylight saving time on
  • Press OK
Sony
  • Press Menu
  • Press right to select briefcase/camera settings tab
  • Scroll down to Date/Time Setup
  • Press Enter
  • Daylight Savings should be selected, press enter
  • Press up to select on to spring forward an hour
  • Press Enter
Edit Time in Lightroom

Quick Tip: This method is also helpful when traveling to a different time zone and you forgot to switch your camera’s time.

  • While in the Library module select your photo(s)
  • At the top click metadata then select edit capture time
  • Select shift by set number of hours (time zone adjust)
  • As it’s daylight savings time select +1 as the new time
  • Click change

 They all had dreams. They all had family. They died for us. Arlington National Cemetery is a heavy place, I can't help but think about all the pain and suffering when presented with row upon row of a headstone representing a fallen soldier and my mind boggles that this still happens today. On this little planet hurtling through an incomprehensible ginormous space - some people think it is ok to kill each other. :( p.s. You should google Cornelius H. Charlton - his story is interesting p.p.s My grandfather is buried in Arlington- my Mom's father was instrumental in designing and implementing early radar systems for the Navy in WW2. Captured with the #Sony #a7RII and #Canon #70200L at 200mm and f/3.2
 #mondaymorningshare - I want to see your failed experiments or favorite photos from the last week. GO TO http://photorec.tv/fb to share your fav image from the past week. Here's my #failedexperiment The US Capitol at Sunset. File this under because I could - a 2 minute exposure with the use of a NISI Filters 10-stop ND. I hoped I would get some interesting wispy movement in the clouds but nothing developed. Next I tried a 6 minute exposure (swipe to see it) and while there may be a little more movement in the clouds it certainly wasn't anything to get excited about. And while I often recommend very carefully shooting building and monuments as symmetrically as possible, I purposefully shot from right of center to avoid losing Ulysses S. Grant statue in the front of the capitol. *  Sony #A7RII and #Canon 2470mm with #NiSiFilters #10StopND
 I love traveling with other photographers on #mckaylive trips. Kari, a trip participant, noticed this line of trees and shared her perspective with me. I had glanced at them but hadn't noticed how nicely they lined up when standing at a certain spot #teacherbecomesthestudent :) We had a great day leaving behind the cherry blossom crowds for a much quieter walk around #HarpersFerryWV. And a visit to #BolivarHeights a much fought over hilltop during the civil war and the site of the largest surrender of Union troops - over 12,000 men surrendered to Stonewall Jackson. *  Captured with the #Panasonic #GH4 and #1235mm lens
