I have been away from this blog for several months. I have been taking this learning about photography, specifically with the Canon T1i camera, a step at a time. I have been busy taking pictures each day of 2010. I completed my goal of achieving 365 shots for 2010. Here’s a sampling of some of my photos:
Here is my link to my Flickr Set for the entire year- 365 pictures! They say the best way to learn your camera is to use it. I agree and feel that I got proficient, in particular, in using the Manual setting. I got better at composition filling the frame, and noticing more details around me. I certainly am learning more about flowers and plants (was woefully ignorant). I’ve learned how “to press the shutter button” correctly. I know more about white balance, exposure, shutter speed, and many other things. I still have much more to study so I’m going to go back through some of the items I had previously read but maybe not always applied. I want to improve my skills. I need to internalize lots of things and get a better grasp of specific concepts. Some days I became so preoccupied with getting my picture of the day that little time was left over to review things and expand my learning. This year I’ve joined an EdTech 52/2011 group. That’s one photo a week. I’m hoping I can review, refresh, and log my continued learning on this blog.
So that’s my next step to becoming a better photographer. Perhaps it will even help another “new” learner. I’m looking forward to the learning journey!
