I saw a post from this lovely lady about a new campaign called Chimpsy called Shoot in Manual. I have never heard of him before, but after checking out his site once I’m already obsessed! There are hundreds of tips and tricks, online classes, and you can even upload your own photos to get critiqued..if you like that type of thing. Gah! I can’t wait to play around on his site. Especially since I just got a new camera and am slightly photo crazy right now.
By signing up for the FREE e-mail campaign, you are taking a pledge to take that camera off of auto and start shooting in manual. Sign up here! And also take a second to check out the blog where I found this campaign, Story of My Life, it’s worth every second.
Since I am semi-new to the DSLR world, I decided to start learning in manual so I don’t get to dependent on auto. Good plan, huh? So far, so good…if you ask me at least! Here is a picture I took today (full post to come):
