they day i turned my camera to *gasp* manual

I've been taking a photography class this year, and it has been SO helpful. Prior to the class, I took pictures in automatic. While that is the "easy" way, and good pictures often come out of it, I knew that in the future - since I want to be a photographer (as well as writer) - I should probably know how to take pictures with my camera on the manual setting. So, I was really excited when I learned the high school group at our co-op was having a photography class! Yeah-eah!

 For a few weeks, we've been learning what things like ISO, aperture, and shutter speed are, and we've been experimenting with them and learning how to use them. Yesterday and today, I took pictures in manual mode! Yes! I have to admit that I am pretty proud of myself (*shy grin*). Plus, although not all of the pictures turn out good (der der der), I like how a lot of them are turning out!

So, without further ado, I'd like to show you some photos I snapped yesterday and today. They are completely unedited (which is rare for me), except for me adding my name to them :-). (also, I realize these pictures are not perfect - duh - but I really like them, and I am after all still learning :D!)

I used to keep my camera on automatic, and it's been on manual for a long time. I have yet to set it back to automatic and see how they turn out now. :)

Wow Talia, these are great! I love the curling bark:)

I'm happy for you and am excited that you're learning to shoot in manual.

What camera do you have?
