I am asked photography questions often. And while I wish I knew how to share the secrets of composition, it sort of just comes out of me. I’m constantly framing the world through the eyes of a lens, whether looking through one or not. Sure, there’s things like the rule of thirds, and color composition, and all sort of other things to keep in mind — but I’m a rule-breaker and I pretty much throw those out and just see the scene as it unfolds. That works for me, most of the time.
So, instead of trying to help my budding photography friends with that part of things (though I did write this tutorial), I thought I might focus more attention on camera settings. After all — it’s not the camera that takes the photo (though it helps), it’s what I’ve taught my camera to do! I’m hoping to do a Friday series, showcasing a photo or (five), and share the camera settings so you can see what I’m doing and maybe that will help you in your photographic endeavors.
