OK, not really. But it is the first decent picture I’ve ever taken using the fully manual setting on my camera, which is pretty exciting. I’m taking a photojournalism class this semester, and today we unceremoniously plunged into the photo world (at dusk, no less). We learned how to adjust the focus, aperture, ISO, white balance etc. I have to say, it was thrilling to be taking photos in a mode other than “auto.”
All these years I’ve been writing, no one ever told me how much fun photography is! It’s yet to be seen whether I’m actually any good, but look for much more to come.
[P.S. Thanks to my classmates and friends Patrick and Caitlin.]
