Going Manual

The book is called Say No to Auto! and you can buy your own copy here

I have been a bit terrified of switching to the manual mode on my camera because I don't know what I am doing.

I took a couple of pictures and didn't worry what they looked like, but rather just played with my settings.  Here are some of the pictures.  We had a bit of a rough potty training day, so we stayed indoors near the window instead of finding open shade outside.

These are two straight out of camera from AUTO:

These reflect more of a true coloring of what she was looking like.  I still have lots to learn, but it was fun experimenting today.
