- Every photo on this blog is altered in a computer program. Until today — all pictures on this post are completely unedited for your viewing pleasure.
- I have had my DSLR over a year and while I shoot most pics in “manual” mode, the ISO has always been in auto.
- I realized from Kristen’s book that this was my very first mistake and everything else was set wrong because of it.
So after a year, it is high time I actually learn how to USE my camera. Are y’all with me? Are you ready to say NO to auto and get better pictures? No matter if you have a blog or just want to take better pictures of your kids, I am convinced this book with help you. I received my copy and printed it out. The book is conveniently sized at 4 x 6 so that it can be put in your camera bag. I did not have a ring to keep the pages together so I actually used a piece of baker’s twine — whatever works right?
But I knew which settings to tweak to make it even better. Better yet I could now make those adjustments quickly without losing the interest of my subject. So within a few more clicks, I had a picture that looked like this.
You don’t have to be a photographer to need this book. You just have to want to take better pictures of your home, your kids, your life. This book is basic. Breaking down those settings and words you don’t understand into language that you get and can apply to your photos. Best yet…it is only $10! A well worthwhile investment! It changed my picture taking life over a weekend. Plus I now know the right camera lens to get in my Christmas stocking. Here is hoping for even better pictures after the holidays!
