What I found was that I need to learn more about my camera and understand the capability it has before I can totally figure out lighting and composition and all the other things that turn a good photograph into art. Yes, just snapping pictures is great and I can and do learn from the hands on experience method best of all. But after a session or two of that this week and feeling frustrated that I had missed some delightful shots, I came home and looked up the things I couldn't figure out during those sessions. Where did I look? Why of all places in the manual that came with my camera! It opened up a whole new understanding of what I was trying to do... AMAZING! The book that made little sense to me when I first got this camera is now enlightening me as to how to make better application of what I have available.
I know that eventually I will have to get out there almost daily and shoot
Perfectionism... bah, humbug! I just want to be satisfied for once with what I am capable of doing! Now that truly would be AMAZING!
