This week I took some time to learn about shutter speeds, apertures, ISO, white balance and a better understanding of how my camera works. It was all really exciting to learn, but found myself overwhelmed when trying to put some of my new knowledge into practice. I was overthinking things and I felt like I was spending more time fiddling with my camera then actually finding things to capture. I did not end up being happy with the resulting photographs.
I tend to feel better about the whole process when I follow my instincts. The photographs don't always turn out great, but that's my opportunity to ask myself what I could have done differently. That often prompts me to go and learn more about photography. My goal is not to overthink because I can always find out how to make it better for the next time.
Here are just a few photographs I took this week.
