Learning to Shoot

At first, I was tentative

having only shot pictures in "auto."

Four weeks ago, I didn't know how to switch my camera to manual!

But after an introductory course with Indy Photo Coach (I highly recommend them!)

I've vowed to keep my camera in manual mode and, if necessary, to learn the hard way.

There have been bad shots and lost photo opportunities

but today, the light was simply delicious under our colorful maple tree

which, I have learned, is necessary when you are attempting to capture a moving target and want photos with a low depth of field.

I still have so much to learn, but today was a confidence booster.
