Conversations With My Camera

(with the manual as interpreter).

Turns out it's far more complex that I had realised, and I've just found a load of functions I didn't know it had. Or at least, I sort of knew some were lurking behind the scenes but I had never allocated the time to do more than take point-and-shoot photos, and I don't learn well with just a manual - I need a structured learning process. And the brainspoons to do it.

So I'm a bit zonked, brainspoons all on recharge now.

The bigger the number, the smaller the hole. The bigger the number, the smaller the hole.

Counter-intuitive, but there you go. I just have to remember that it's the opposite of what would make an awesome double entendre. If it was the same, the double entendre would be an integral part of the learning process but it is not, therefore I just have to remember there's no double entendre. No double entendre, no double entendre.

All those other functions? Probably not important to this stage of the learning process. You need aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance. Oh, and focus controls, if you're not focusing manually.

Once you figure out what aperture and shutter speed do, you'll understand how to adjust things with exposure compensation or things like that.

So keep it simple.

At least that's what I think.
