I asked a colleague today if he had been using his camera and he said 'yes'! Awesome!
We took the same camera class in December from Greg 'Tornado Hunter" Johnson. It was a fabulous workshop. If you are interested in Greg's classes, go to: https://tornadohunter.com/introduction-to-photography-and-camera The last piece of advice was to use the camera to retain all the information we learned over a jam packed two days.
Ya, that didn't happen. But I have pulled my camera out for a few things. A month or so ago, I was at a branding and I wasn't needed to wrestle calves. So I walked around and took a few photos. It was a sunny/cloudy/sunny/cloudy day, so my light was constantly changing. Sometimes I got lucky and well for others, they need a little touch up. But it is summer in Saskatchewan, and that is something that will need to wait until we don't have beautiful weather. We have to take advantage of it while we have it. :D
I have so much to remember and still so much to learn. ISOs, f-stops, shutter speeds, white balance, etc. As you can tell, I am not a photographer, but that is okay. I am having fun just playing and there always seemed to be photos I had desired to take, but didn't have a camera. For me, it is always all about the horses or dogs anyway and they haven't complained yet. My camera isn't fancy or expensive, nor a dslr. But it can do the things I need for now.
It doesn't matter if you are good at something, nor does it matter if you completely understand it, just get out there and do it. Find someone who does know that can give you some pointers. Play with it. Just do it!
Just one person's point of view. How cool is it that there can be two rights and there can be two thousand?!!
