Remember a few weeks ago when I gave an introduction to photography class at work?

Well, I had a bunch of sample images and a bunch of notes left over from the class. Since I can't stand to let bits sit there and rot, I decided to try turning them into a blog. It's still experimental, but if you're interested in photography basics, check out Stop Shooting Auto!

Thank you. I have had my D50 for a while and simply love it. I do not have a great grasp on the settings though and your instructions make it seem like childs play for the settings and puts my mind at ease as far as getting out of the ole auto mode. Thank you thank you thank you.

Thanks!

Next up is a shutter speed exercise, and then I start talking about aperture. That's where it really gets interesting.

Very cool - I'll have to give it a try. I don't have a nice digital SLR but I do have a decent little camera where I can manipulate all these controls in a manual mode through the menus.

Also about this week and needing a couch to crash - the day got changed (to tomorrow night from tonight)and a bunch of other stuff got rolled through the plans and so I apologize about not getting back to you until now about it. An old friend popped up and offered his place and it's much closer to the city so I am going to stay there for this trip.

Perhaps next year I may look you up specificly when I am out on my ST doing a road trip :] Hopefully by then I will have a nice full bodied digital SLR and we can swap some pictures, bike stories, etc.

Thanks for the opening the door to me though! Much appreciated

Not a problem! I'm actually pretty OK with that, because it means I don't have to move the grungy motorcycle parts out of the middle of the living room. :-)

Way cool!

I will now be a regular reader. This is a great resource for the noobs who want to take much better photos.

Thanks!

Thanks!

You have to go do the shutter speed exercise and post your photos on Flickr. That way I'll know it works for someone besides me.

OK, I'll do it today. Took some more pics last night, but I'm still not happy with my lack of talent. I'll read the blog today and do it.

I poked at it a bit, and I have to say that I am very impressed. Very professional and yet highly accessible all at once.

Coolio. :)
