I thought my DSLR camera would be all roses and dandelions and perfect pictures. While I can get a lot more than I could with my little point-and-shoot – I’m not doing everything I can.
That’s why I’m challenging myself to use manual mode and become someone who knows how to use the camera I’m holding.
As I explained in my first post of the Manual Mode challenge – this is beginner stuff. If you’re an expert, feel free to add your tips. Just know, you’re likely not going to learn anything new.
We went to the park and I got a couple great shots!
But then I realized… there were clouds.
Where are all the clouds in my pictures?
This was a cloudy day.
I realized… overexposed. Remember those lighting lessons of day two.
That’s okay. If you chose this. BUT I think the blue skies and white fluffy Pacific Northwest clouds would have added too much to sidestep.
Huh. So that’s why the expert photographers say practice makes perfect.
Just keep at it.
See you back here for Day 5.
