As an early Mother's Day gift, I took an all-day photography class put on by Shutter Storm on Saturday. I learned so much! I walked away with so much knowledge about my camera, even though I think I was the lone Canon user, they were all Nikon fans. But it is okay, I like to be different. I learned how to shoot in full manual (and in RAW) mode, which included learning how to control white balance, ISO, shutter speed, aperture, exposure, composition, and the list goes on and on. If you have no idea what I am talking about, then you must take this class. It was awesome!
However, I walked out of the class with a long list of wants:
- Shoot Sac (but I need some lenses to put in it)
We went to 3 different location to shoot in different settings. Here are a couple of photos I took during out day. It was great to be able to go out and shoot and be able to ask and get direction as to what to do in certain lighting situations, etc. Very helpful. Sure beats the YouTube videos, books from the library, and apps I have downloaded.
