manual

Well ... I have officially crossed something off of my photography goals list! I have learnt how to shoot in Manual Mode (M). With the help of this post, I kissed the Aperture Priority (AV) Mode goodbye, and it only took me a day to figure it out! Of course there are a few kinks that I've got to figure out, but for the most part I am now shooting in Manual. After reading the post I immediately ventured into my yard to try it out. When I looked at the LCD screen and saw that I indeed could get properly exposed photos, I felt inspired and didn't want to stop shooting so I decided to go for a walk on the seawall down the road.

One last thing! Do you like the new May Header? :) I'm thinking of changing the header on the 1st of every month. Let me know what you think of it.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I can't believe it's already May!!! Where did the time go? Summer is near. :)
