So now that I've come clean about my dream, I am forcing myself to be more adventurous with my camera. And I have to say that the more I learn about this machine, I find myself both in awe and utter frustration. What a complex and fickle machine it is. At the moment, I feel it has the upper hand in our relationship.
But I have sat my camera down and explained to it in no uncertain terms that I will be the boss. Sure there are many mysteries that it beholds at this point. Sure, I'll admit that when I go to upload my photos onto my computer I am baffled at the small amount of pictures that turn out. I am glad I have the discretion to post only those photos that do turn out...if only you saw the ones that don't! It feels like my dirty little photography secret. Can any other photographers relate or is it just me?
I see taking a class and joining a meet up group somewhere very near in my future. Either way, I have told the camera that I WILL arise victorious. Just maybe not today.
(The above photo was taken a few weeks ago at Barnes and Noble as I attempted to read about my camera in the Nikon manual. See? I'm really trying!)
