Admittedly, I thought just scooping up a semi-nice camera and tinkering around with the buttons would be enough to get me some cool shots during my adventures around the city, but that’s waaaay far from the case. In reality, all the f-stop and ISO number decisions I have to make when using the thing have me sitting here scratching my head like ‘huh?’
And yet, two hours with my friend Andy and I’m feeling a lot more confident in my ability to take the type of photo I have it in my mind to capture. Last week, we spent some time in the contemporary art wing of the Smithsonian American Art Museum and for once, I’m actually happy with how my shots came out. I know I still have a ton to learn, but I think this was a good start down the right path.
