LEARNING MY CAMERA IN MANUAL

I have been testing and learning using manual and manual focus on my Nikon D60. I had always used auto as I  am still learning digital. Well I have ventured away from auto and am now taking and practicing in manual . I still have a lot to learn of my camera but thanx to Papa  who has the patience of a saint and who is teaching me, I am venturing out on my own and taking as many photos in manual as I can testing all the settings!  Here are just a few photos that I have taken that I think aren't to bad and that I am proud of for the first attempted at manual photography !

                        My Christmas cactus! It blooms early !

 

These are just a few photos I took in manual mode, I will be practicing in this mode every time I photograph something !  

                                      Have a great day !

I love your pictures of your birds. In the winter I take lots of pictures at our bird feeders, we find that the tufted titmouse is the one that likes to eat our peanuts. He's a real character.
