...but I do not like to read the manual. I like to dive right in and figure it out for myself.
I've owned my digital SLR for over 2 years and did not learn how to change the ISO setting till yesterday, thanks to Elizabeth Dillow's class at our LSS. I also did not know how to change the f-stops. With Elizabeth's good teachings, I am now ready to play with my camera in Av & Tv mode.
Below is a photo I took during class (f4, iso 100, 17mm). This was before I learned how to change my ISO setting.
I changed my ISO to 800 in this photo.
We received a wonderful book, Understanding Exposure and a handout that help me gain a good understanding of photography in simple terms.
I'm also learning a lot about photography through Barbara Carroll's class at Big Picture. So I'd like to try to use my camera more often so I can retain all of what I've learned thus far.
And I've put Aperture software on my wish list as an organizing tool to use with iPhoto. That doesn't mean I have given up on Photoshop, I just like technology and want to dabble in a little bit of everything.
Not only am I student of scrapbooking, I am also a student of photography and technology. And I will always be a student because I never read the manual.
