On a recent RV trip, I had my camera cocked and ready to fire. I was so darn excited about seeing the sights and capturing the perfect picture, that I just started shooting every beautiful sight that I saw. What I got was a bunch of snapshots and not much else. I either didn’t have the right lens on or I was shooting in the middle of the day which is a “no-no. Well, it turned out to be a fresher course on how to use your camera…Don’t shoot in the middle of the day and think before you shoot.
What I learned was, I’m an amateur who loves to take pictures. What I learned was, I’ve got a lot to learn. What I learned was, I still love photography. What I learned was, photography is about thinking, and it is a skill! Heart and soul is an important ingredient, but you have to know how to use that camera and do the right thing when shooting!
Take for example the above image, the field was so beautiful with the wildflowers growing, but they were blown out in the light when I tried to capture the image. A tri pod would have helped. I was using a ND filter but it didn’t help much in the light.
Anyway, live and learn…There is always something in life that we need to do better, and photography is one of those things for me. I will keep trying and loving it.
Thank you for stopping by.
