  5. Well I certainly learned quite a bit. Setting up my camera first and then working on the dish. The happiest I’ve been with a photo — although it needs post editing to lighten it up — was one that I set up completely focused. I then put my hero in where I had set up the dish. Worked like a charm. Thank you for the tips.
