For as often as I put “photography” at the top of my hobbies list, I am embarrassingly unfamiliar with the Manual function on my Nikon. Since I was heading up to my family’s cabin for the day a few weeks back, I decided to invite my oldest friend and fellow photography enthusiast, Natalie, along to have a little photography day.
Usually we are taking photos on-the-go, so we wanted a day devoted to tinkering with the settings and taking our time with photographing.
After some forest exploring, we headed over to pick some flowers at a nearby farm…and obviously got a bit distracted by the border collies.
After the brief detour, we got around to doing what we actually went there for.
It was a lovely day to familiarize ourselves with the mysterious Manual mode. Sadly, I set my ISO too high and the photos from earlier in the day are a bit grainy. Oh well, now I know to always check the settings before taking more pictures!
