About a year or so ago I bought a fancy DSLR camera with the best of intentions. I had big dreams to photograph not only my trip to China but the beautiful subject I was bringing home.
But my inner procrastinator got the best of me and I never figured out how to use the camera beyond turning it to Auto. Until recently.
I have long admired the photos taken by Lisa at The Long Road to China blog. So I decided to take one of her online classes. Which is another reason February was so busy for me.
I'm a work in progress. I invested in a new lens to help give me better shots. But I need a lot of practice. It's a lot harder than it looks to shoot in Manual.
Just trying to get my fingers used to changing the settings is enough. But then working the formula of the proper shutter speed, ISO and F-Stop while chasing a 17 mth old.... like I said, need a lot of practice.
I also took Lisa's Photoshop class and am just starting to dabble in the fine art of post processing. This is my first attempt.
Maybe some day I'll be half as good as Lisa. Hoping anyway...
