The Photography Bug


When I was younger and working for a photographer, I learned how to use a completely manual SLR camera. We didn’t have autofocus and had to set our own f-stops, etc.

I loved using my Canon and took quite a few photos. The price of film and processing deterred me to a degree and when digital cameras came out, I started using a point and shoot.

Over the years, I’ve forgotten much of what I learned about photography. I now have a Canon Digital SLR, but I mostly use the automatic settings.

My stepmother is also an avid amateur photographer and recently found a course on photography. It includes lighting, settings, etc. We both ordered this course, and I hope to see a drastic improvement in my pictures as I learn more.



I’ve found some websites that help. One is Best Photography Classes It’s a free site. They also have a Facebook group.

I’m also a member of Flickr. Many of my photos on there are quite sub par, but I occasionally snap one that’s pretty good for a novice. What are some of your favorite online sharing sites for photos?

Please feel free to share any photography tips that you have! I love to learn and welcome any comments or tips.

  1. Thanks for sharing the information about the free online photography class. We seem to have more in common than the book 2 and book 1 thing.

    Wendy, How funny that we have so much in common! I hope the classes help! My photography is definitely lacking, but I do enjoy it!
