my first attempts at the scary manual settings

Tuesday, March 15, 2011




My motto has always been "Don't be average at the things you love to do, be exceptional." Even as a little girl I would dribble the soccer ball around the house for HOURS so when Saturday's game came I would be that much better than the week before. Yes, I may get a little OCD when it comes to new hobbies, but I have always been like this. I am learning to embrace it.

I have been chatting with some of my "exceptional" photography friends and have come to the conclusion I need to say BYE BYE to Mr. Flash and Hello Mr. Manual setting. This is going to be hard for me because 1) I always use the flash..even if its not really needed. 2) I prefer the settings that do all the work for me.

I am no where near being exceptional...so in the meantime I will be the obnoxious girl who is taking millions of pictures of the same thing until the aperture and shutter speed are juuuuust right ; )

LOL, I was scared to death when I first started to use the M stetting :) I am nooooo where near good..but the more practice the better I get..It seriously make a HUGE difference when you can start to figure it out....I can adjust to almost any lighting (it make take 5 different adjustments before I get it right..but still HA!)

I saw you mentioned on your blog somewhere (I can't seem to locate it now...) where you sought advice on learning about the manual setting. Maybe from a few fellow bloggers. Does this ring a bell?

And, Happy New Year :)
