WOW! Real photography is hard!!! After a couple of lessons on Proud Photography 101, I took out my brand new entry level Canon Rebel T3 and shot 367 photos.
After reviewing them all, I saved 1...yes, you heard that right....ONE. No matter how many bells and whistles your DSLR camera has, if you don't understand the basics, disaster is what happens when you press the shutter button. Today, I practised blurring the background and even that was hard. This pic was was the only viable one I
could get out of the many I tried. Here it is attached...and it has a lot to be desired... I also practised my motion pan lesson with absolutely no success. I came close a couple of times, but nothing salvageable. But I had to at least save 1 for all my effort this morning. I'm excited about taking photography really seriously, but I'm alreadystumped at simple concepts like shutter speed and aperture. But I'll get there...eventually.
