I love my fancy camera, but most of the time I think it just makes me look like I know what I’m doing. I tried to take it off auto once. It was a hot mess. I had downloaded a course and was trying to decipher what the heck I was suppose to be doing. I didn’t know how to take pictures anymore. So I immediately took it off manual and put it back on auto until now.
The amazing Kristen Duke has felt my pain and created a Say No to Auto Video Workshop! Woo hoo!!! Are you like me, a visual learner? Have you been frustrated with learning how to use your camera? Kristen has an e-book of this course which is great, but the video shows more in depth demonstrations and explanations. Plus, the video includes embedded pictures of the e-book (but if you want the e-book it is just $10 extra).
Kristen takes a 3 step approach to understanding your camera in manual. Things that seem foreign easy to understand. I never thought someone could explain something so difficult to me. I’m still practicing in manual, but as I was watching the video the lightbulbs started turning on in my head. For my practice shot below, I was able to set the three settings and go!
I thought about going out and trying to take pictures of my cute niece, but decided I better practice on a still subject first. The photo on the left is in auto, which isn’t bad, but it is limited. The photo on the right is a practice shot in manual. I love that the their is some blur near the bottom and the photo seems a little lighter. I know I have a long way to go, but this is so much better than were I was at before. Let’s practice together and learn how to use these amazing cameras we have!
