I love taking pictures and get frustrated when I can't get the picture I see. So, I finally got myself a digital SLR camera (Nikon D90)...so that I can control what the camera does and get more of the pictures I see!
I am learning so much about how to work the camera...what aperature (F-stop), shutter speed, depth of field, exposure, ISO, white balance...etc. all do together. It's crazy, there's so much to learn!
I took a class on my camera, a class on the business of wedding photography, and currently I'm taking a class on Digital Photography. Which of course the last one is the most beneficial at this point. And I've bought up a bunch of books...on digital photography in general, one in general with my D90, some on the business of digital photography, one on composition, and one on low and night lighting. Phew! Now to find the time to read them all! And I will probably take the 2nd Digital Photography class to continue to learn and be forced to take pictures! Hmm...as if I really need to be forced...but to be forced to take them using techniques and such.
So, that's what I'm enjoying learning about right now! Some of my D90 pics are on Facebook. The rest...have yet to be shared! :)
What are you learning about?
