Confession: I am horribly intimidated by manual mode on my camera. I use it occasionally, but I often end up frustrated or I am in a hurry to get the shot and shoot in auto (gasp! I know, stop judging me, I’m learning as I go here).
After a conversation with a friend about my fears and frustrations of shooting in manual, I decided I was going to give it another go. So, that evening, after work, I grabbed my camera and headed out for a walk along the creek that runs through our acreage. Using my knowledge of the Sunny/16 rule, I figured I’d start there and adjust as necessary. After a few shots and figuring out which way to adjust the numbers (possible the most difficult part of the whole process) I ended up with some shots that I was pretty proud of.
