Lesson Two//How to shoot in Manual Photographs

Posted in Personal Blog

I surprised myself!

After spending the morning and early afternoon lying on the sofa reading up on how to shoot in manual I had a spurt of energy.

Now any spoonie knows that energy spurts are not to be trusted, they lull you into a false sense of security. However, I was on to energies game and decided to pootle about the garden between rain showers and see what I could come up with.

All the following shots are in manual, playing with altering ISO, Aperture and Shutter speed ~ so although in some cases the subject is the same the settings aren’t.

I need to continue to practice photographing in this mode throughout the week to cement in the lessons learnt.

But for now, I share with you my first attempts..

So there you go, my first ever attempts at playing with Manual settings ~ the rest of the week I will mostly be seen with camera around my neck photographing everything in sight to practice this mode.

Ultimately I would like to be able to go somewhere to photograph landscapes in manual to really see a difference in the settings.

So it’s goodbye from me now until next week ~ when I will be learning how to use focal points!
