going manual and never going back

December 22, 2010 § 1 Comment

i know. hang your head in shame…i wasn’t shooting manual. as i slowly learn my way around a digital SLR i’ve had it mostly in aperture priority. yesterday i made a vow to myself to shoot only in manual for a week. and after just a day of it, i’m hooked, transformed, converted. duh. as if it should be any surprise. that my colors are clearer, images sharper, bokeh better. already i’ve gotten the hang of how things work together in the camera so i don’t have to rely on post processing as much. but this is only day one…

(just to give myself a point of reference to look back on, i didn’t do any PP on any of these. all SOOC)


tonight is the one night of the year where i am susie home maker. i make loaves of bread and fudge for Jack’s teachers, the crossing guard, husband’s company. being added into the mix this year is peppermint bark (a wrap up of this adventure later) but tonight i liked the fudge. and the way it looked on the side (both in and out) of the pot.

i love this. endless learning. onward and upward…

    I love everything about this post! You’re learning, you’re gaining confidence, you’re proud of your progress, you’re baking gifts to say thank you for the holidays (so much more thoughtful than a gift from Macy’s) and you’re taking photos of your beautiful boys! Onward & upward indeed!!
