I’m super excited! I enrolled in an online photography class offered through the Digital Photography School– 31 Days to Becoming a Better photographer. I know there are some fine points of being an excellent photographer that I’ve missed in my haphazard path to teaching myself how to use my DSLR cameras.
Since my blog often functions as a personalized “brain box” where I can stow my thoughts and photos with tags and categories to find them again… I’m planning to collect and organize my assignments here. (This should keep me busy as a beaver, for a while.)
My first assignment was to set my camera up with settings that were recommended by the instructor. I decided to use my D 850 for this class to have the advantage of full-frame photography.
The second assignment was simply to Shoot in Manual, and to take photos in different contexts.
These are my photos for this assignment:
White Balance recommendation was to use “Auto” however, I think the result looked dull and decided to try my camera’s Cloudy Day setting instead.
