February 5, 2017: I was shocked to see that the last time I posted here was just over one year ago. I began to write last summer, but never posted it. Here is what I wrote:
August 2016: Summer is beginning to fade. The last time I posted here was in foggy February. Much has transpired since then.
I bought a new camera in June. After months of contemplating between a Nikon and a Canon, I chose the Nikon D3300. It’s a small step up from the Canon point-and-shoot that served me well for over five years.
The Nikon still has the point-and-shoot modes, but allows me to graduate to manual mode—which I’ve yet to do.
Manual Mode involves terms like aperture, shutter speed, ISO—terms that I still do not completely understand.
Instead of learning the camera, my focus has been on learning how to set up the composition of a photograph such as those that you have been viewing above.
There’s a lot to take in. My hope is, by the next post I will have graduated to Manual Mode.
