Photo of the Week: Conquering Exposure Compensation
I mentioned in my last post that the sunset on Saturday night was breathtaking. Unfortunately, every photo I snapped was washed out & I couldn't manage to capture the gorgeous light! I was infuriated!
After fighting with my camera, I finally had a breakthrough & remembered a handy dandy post on exposure compensation by the Pioneer Woman. I gave it a try & let me tell you... it changed everything.
I am not an expert photographer, but I feel like I'm making baby steps... (last week, I conquered changing the shutter speed to capture some awesome firework photos). Here's my secret to improved photography skills: just have patience, take lots of photos & don't be discouraged! You'll have plenty of ah-ha moments of your own. Promise. (Also, reading photo blogs has helped! PW has a great photography section, I also love Ken Rockwell, Shutter Sisters, Ryan Detzel & Miz Booshay).
