I was happy with my P&S. That’s why they call it a point and shoot, right? You point. And shoot. I got by on the easier settings for macros and whatnot, but I was scared of doing anything manually.
But my ambition got the better of me. It was a lot of little numbers and I knew there was something about ISO and f stop. Aperture? Shutter speed? People knew about these things and I decided I was going to become one of those people. Morgan tells me technical things but I forget, because I need to know technical things in the bone.
So this afternoon I have been making notes from a book I got at the library, and testing the advice about settings. I took some really dire photos, and some pretty good ones. But I’m learning, and that’s the main thing.
