Last Friday, I asked you all to weigh in on whether you would like me to share some photography tips. I had a lot of response from reader’s who said they would. I plan to start sharing some of the things I learn, as I am learning, with you on Friday’s.
This week, I would like to start out by sharing a few of the resources I study to learn more about photography.
As I mentioned a few weeks ago, ShootflyShoot was a great starting point. After sitting down and watching all of the videos in one sitting, I was understanding manual mode. That afternoon, I jumped up from my computer, put in in manual and haven’t looked back.
Before I watched the ShootflyShoot tutorials, I was lost. I was really intimidated to even put my camera in manual mode.
I thought I would be trying to juggle composition, ISO, apeture, shutter speed, lighting all at the same time. I wondered how I was going to handle it all.
You do have to think about all of things when you are shooting, but it is not as difficult as I thought thanks to a good base. Kevin and Josh really break it down to make manual mode easy to understand.
The second set of tutorials I rely on are on Life with My 3 Boybarians. Darcy is a professional photographer and graphic designer. I have been following her tutorials 31 Days to a better photo. The tutorials are very helpful, she really breaks it down to make photography concepts easy to understand.
I recently found two websites Cambridge in Colour and Digital Photography School that have a wealth of free photography tips, and tutorials. I just started reading them, but I know I am going to be going back often. I found them through a photography Q & A session on Fly Through Our Window.
I hope this helps to get you pointed in the right direction. I will share a few more next week.
Happy Weekend!Pin It
