How to Take Photos

November 28, 2011 § Leave a comment

I’ve always loved taking photos. The one above is of my friends’ daughters playing in a pool in Charleston, SC. Taking photos for my blog has been an aspect I’ve really enjoyed. Luckily I have an amazing camera (Canon 5D Mark II) that does most of the work. I know one of the central elements in learning photography is to just get out, fool around with the camera and take a lot of pictures. I’ve done that but now I want to actually understand how my camera works and learn use it manually. I know I could do a lot more with it.

I also want to hone in more on what kind of subjects I like. Looking back over the photos I liked most from last year I seem to gravitate towards people and life. It will be fun to explore whether that’s true this week.
