Well, I did something very new this week - in two parts. Ages ago I booked myself onto an introduction to photography course using Groupon. Never done that before (or since!) but I got a bargain.
I went up to the South Bank on a chilly grey Sunday and I finally learned to use my SLR off Auto! I mean, I have had a play occasionally and I did do a CJ course last Christmas, but I was so rushed by the season that I didn't take much in. I've tried reading books but it doesn't stick in my head for two minutes. Learning by doing is definitely my thing and I had lots of fun trying to make my camera do things my way!
Such a grey day wasn't exactly conducive to taking great pictures, so these are the highlights.
The good thing is that I can now remember what the letters on the dial are for, and I just need to practise - a lot!
