Ever since I got my DSLR camera (two years ago), I have been shooting on Automatic. There were dials and settings on my camera but I had no idea what to do with them. Finally I decided to do something about that and I signed up for a class. It was a 3 week course for beginners and would take you through the controls of your camera.
Of course there was homework. We had to experiment with aperture and shutter speed. I tried these out on a little waterfall right in the middle of our town. It was in a dark corner so I did several adjustments to the settings.
Since this week's theme for Photo Art Friday is LIQUID and I had been shooting waterfalls I used an overlay on one of them.
Here's what the original one looked like without editing.
Knowing how to use the controls on my camera has made photography a lot more fun for me. I signed up for a second class which will focus on composition.
