      Ladies, we need to do some prep before our first lesson. This won't take you too long, but it will be very helpful in leaing how to use your camera.

      I want you to sit down with your camera and your manual. You need to read the manual cover to cover. Pay close attention to where all the buttons are located on your camera and all the functions associated with them. You camera manual is your got to guide. I carry mine in my camera bag all the time.

      If you can't find your manual, you should be able to go to the manufacturer website and download it there.

      Once completed, come back to this thread and tell us something new you leaed about your camera. I also want to know what your goals are for your photography skills.

      Happy reading. I can't wait to get started.

        Rrrrrread a manual?
        Oh, lord, okay, I'll dig it out.
        Of course it's not with my camera; I don't know why. That's actually a good idea.

              I've read my manual several times and lea something new every time. Totally worth it! 🙂

The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                  well I had read mine when I first got it, but I re-read most of it and I always lea something new….this time I didn't realize there was an eye cover ON my strap! lol

                  My goal for this year is to lea more about manual exposure to get some different effects on my photography. I've relied mostly on the auto settings of my camera and know it has way more potential….
