Ok y'all, I have a confession. I've had my camera for well over a year and I've barely gotten out of auto focus. It's been part laziness, part "I'll do that some other time." Well, the time came on a date to the conservatory. All I can ask myself now is, "Why did I not start working on this before?!" I love the shots I got. Even more, I loved the feeling of actually controlling the camera instead of it controlling me. I can't tell you how many times I used to get frustrated when my camera's autofocus went crazy. This summer, among other things, will be the summer of the manual focus. I think it got off to a decent start. Any suggestions for me on the journey? I'm always up for tips and tricks! On another note, how is it June already? I have no idea where May went. More incentive to seize the day (as if any more incentive were needed.) I hope your June is off to a splendid start. Your June could be even better if you one that darling Indica Jewelry Necklace. Today is the last day to sign up for the giveaway. Good luck!
