I love taking photos but I’m far from being any good at it and even though I have a brilliant DSLR camera, I have no idea how to use it outside of the manual mode which is such a shame as it’s capable of taking much better photos than I currently take with it!
I’ve lost count of the number of times that I say I’m going to learn to take better photos and then done nothing about it and the fact that I feel like my photos aren’t as good as they could be has taken the shine off using my camera a little bit for me – so much so that I can’t even remember the last time I used it.
I’ve been using my iPhone for photos lately which is great for capturing quick moments but I really want to learn to use my camera properly so I decided to set myself a little photo challenge for the rest of February.
I’ve chosen a series of words that I want to capture on camera, vague enough that I can interpret them as I want depending on the mood I’m in but specific enough that I have a great starting point….
My plan is that by giving myself something to focus on then I’ll be motivated enough to get my camera out and experiment with it, learning how to use it in manual mode as I go along. I’m pretty sure my photos won’t be amazing but I’ll share them over on Instagram and Facebook so you can have a look at how I’m getting on if you want to.
Any other ideas on how I can learn to use my camera would be much much appreciated….
