If you’ve seen the photographs I take you know I’m not great at taking pictures. I’d love to have stunning photos but mastering my camera is something that I have yet to do. It’s been a long time since I’ve really tried practicing photography but being outside so much lately reminded me I need to do it.
Practicing photography is more than just snapping shots!
Shutter speed, aperture, white balance; it’s going to take a lot more reading for me to fully understand what all of it means. And, once I’ve read more, practicing what I’ve learned will take up a lot of my time. As my sister has told me I need to take hundreds of photos to start getting better.
Over the last few days I’ve tried taking some photographs and these are my results. None of these photos has been retouched. And if those of you who are wonderful photographers (you know who you are) have suggestions, please offer them! I need all the help I can get!
On most of these photos I tried playing with settings on my camera to see what differences they made.
There’s not a lot of difference between these two but I can see a little.
The adjustments I made must have been very tiny. These look, with regard to color, to be almost the same to me.
I think I’d need a super-telephoto lens to get good pictures of the moon. But these pictures reminded me that using the tripod is very helpful!
