You may remember that I took an online photography class a while back. I loved learning about my camera and taking great pictures. But....I've gotten a little rusty and I need to refresh my memory and learn some new things too.
Just like the angel she is...Beth at Manic Mother (and her friend Lolli at Better in Bulk) decided to teach us what she knows and I couldn't be more excited!
Last week, Beth started the lessons by getting to know your camera and explained the different modes. I pretty much use all of the non-automatic modes already but I do it poorly.
And of course, it wouldn't be a lesson with out homework and our challenge was to take a Winter Themed photograph in any mode except full auto. I'm not leaving my house much right now because of the snow and cold so I just stepped outside my front door and took a picture of the mountain behind my house.
Taken in Manual Mode
Shutter Speed 1/320
This was taken at 4:35pm as the sun was setting. I love how the sun turned the leftover leaves on the trees orange. In the summer, the entire mountain turns a beautiful orange hue.
If you need some help learning your way around your camera...join us!
P.S. I'll be watching The Bachelor this morning and posting my thoughts later today.
