I have a challenge up for June, which is stopping action (fast shutter speed).
Let’s just do one assignment a month so as not to burn anyone out. But what I would LIKE to see is that everyone posts a few of the process in getting to a their good shot. Post the blurry ones, etc., that lead up to the one you think “got it”. And if you can keep up with the EXIF data or track the settings, post that info also. Again, this is where I get lost! I try different settings and then forget how I did something.
Even if you don’t have a DSLR but want to try some of the things your little camera will do, why not join? We are going to stay private so we can work out the bugs of photography ourselves -- but everyone would be welcome to post their work on their own blogs.
I admit to being Photoshop-Dependent and using the pre-set features of my camera instead of fiddling with the dials and menus. The math of it all makes me nervous still.
And hopefully we will get a member or two who understands all the dials and menus and wouldn’t mind giving some pointers or creating a challenge or four themselves.
Anyone wanting to get to know their camera better, let’s dig in!
