I just wanted to thank all you amazing mother photographers who came to my class today. It was so fun to talk about one of my very favorite subjects. Are you overwhelmed? I sure hope not but I know I threw a bunch of info. at you in that short hour! The point I wanted to reiterate over and over though is that once you get the hang of it it's pretty simple. Just take little steps...start with the ISO, then work on aperture, then add in the shutter speed. Read your camera manual and get to know it well. I know the auto mode turns out some great pictures, but if you stick with learning to shoot in manual mode you'll LOVE the results.
The most important thing is to practice right away so you'll remember all the stuff. Good luck! I'll be doing another class in September so we can push forward with your new skills you'll have under your belt by then.
