I've got a few weeks of photography class under my belt, can you even tell? I've been taking all my pictures in manual mode for the past 2 weeks, which means I'm driving the unfortunate subjects of my photos especially crazy now. You just think it's bad when your nutty aunt goes to take your picture with a camera that's in video mode (or worse, isn't even turned on). But try having a rookie like me staring down the lens at you- making you reenact whatever it was you just did because I didn't have the right aperture or shutter speed set the first time. Oh, and can you be really still? Because I'm going to try that spot metering thing I learned last week, and I've got to aim right at the middle of your forehead like I'm a sniper and you're starring in Deliverance.
For those of you photo pros out there, I should have gone down one f/stop on that 2nd photo, right?
