I have been learning about my camera. I hate reading manuals and how-to's. That is why I am so grateful to find others who are willing to share what they know. My fabulous friend Lori the Photographer has been teaching me the ins and outs of my camera. She says we are practicing and learning together. I say I am watching an expert in action and learning tons. We had the pleasure of having her adorable little niece (broken shoulder and all) as a model for us. The challenge was to take all the pictures in the manual mode. So first I had to be taught how to do that then we just took lots of pictures. Afraid of Manual mode --yes. Teacher Lori says you just have to stop being a wimp and just go for it. I have to admit it was fun. I should probably take some pictures tomorrow to make sure I remember to do everything right (retention is a struggle for me). These are a few of my favorites. It's a treat to watch someone work who has such a great eye for a good shot. Thanks Lori.
