I’ve been learning a lot about photography over the summer. I reread Scott Kelby’s books, learned a bit online, and found some great resources to help me get from Auto mode to Manual mode. I now know what all of those little setting do on my camera. I know the difference between the P setting and AV setting, although I’ll admit that I still have to think about it. I’m still learning, so when I’m ready to take a photo, I have to think about what the setting does. If I want to take a quick picture, I still go right back to the little green box.
Last week, when we went to my cousin’s farm, I had the chance to play around with my camera a little. I took my camera off of Auto mode and really spent some time thinking about what I was doing. I waited for perfect lighting, played around with the settings, and even learned how to adjust add more light to the photo with that little number line thingy. (Ok, that’s not the technical term but I’m being lazy and don’t want to look up the real name for it.)
Here are a few pictures I took on our Farm-cation (that’s the term we use for our vacation to my cousin’s farm).
I’d show you more pictures of my kids in the straw bales at sunset, but some freak-o stalker could be reading this. You’re thinking that’s crazy, but I know all you bloggy mamas are thinking the EXACT SAME THING, so don’t make fun of me.
