I have FINALLY determined to really learn my camera. I have been cruisin’ along on auto or AV/TV mode (gasp!) for the last year. I’ve been terrified of switching to Manual, because the ONE time that I tried, I failed. I’ve been getting a few great photos by on finding great light, and editing photos on Lightroom….but I decided I want to learn, and get better photos!
I started late one night looking on YouTube, and googling photography tutorials. I came across Click it Up a Notch, and read a few of her posts. It helped me understand the basic terms/functions of my camera so much better. I switched my camera to Manual and haven’t gone back since. 🙂
I was inspired by her blog to do a personal 30 day challenge. Let me tell you, it’s not easy to get the camera out daily. I have been determined to try my hardest. Since Beckham isn’t mobile, he is usually my model for all these.
I always photograph my cupcakes on a white chair in the nursery. This cupcake sat there from 2 p.m. until 7 p.m. I remembered I left it in there when I heard the girls playing. I could just see chocolate icing covering the entire room. When I went in, I only saw little finger marks were someone had “sampled” the chocolate frosting. Whew!
