I have been sticking to most of my New Year’s Resolutions so far and have completed the first homework from Emma Davies, A Year With My Camera course. The aim was to take 12 pictures throughout the day- I’ve posted my 5 favourite shots above.
The photographs were taken in the middle of the day at Roseberry Topping which is maintained by the National Trust. My main aims for the photos were to get to grips with manual mode, which meant being able to balance ISO, aperture and shutter speed. It was also amazing using the flash could do for some of the portrait shots- it looked more like natural light rather than those harshly lit family Christmas photos! Pretty pleased with the composition of the first photo too- so lucky to have had clear skies and good weather!
I feel a lot more confident with my Canon EOS 40D using manual mode, I’ll probably explore some more in the near future. I have been tempted to upgrade to a 7D as I have seen some fab offers, but I think I need to get to grips with my current camera first! Beside I’m rather attached to it…
Another resolution of mine was to do more drawings- which I have done, more doodles that drawings mind… Plus I’ve found some old work that I haven’t posted before which should help me post more regularly and get into the swing!
