Let it be known before anything else is said that I have absolutely NO idea what I am doing!
After much waiting and anticipation- not to mention checking the FedEx tracking website a ridiculous amount of times over the past few days, I finally got my new camera!
Being that I have only ever had a simple point&click camera, I have absolutely no clue what i’m doing right or wrong. I toggled around with a couple of different things- but when it comes to exposure, shutter speed, and other more intense things than my last camera could ever understand- I am clueless.
I tried, and I read parts of the manual (with 2 awake small children I didn’t have much time to do anything other than quickly skim the parts that told me how to work the damn thing. No way did I have time to go into depth, even still, the manual is only bare-bones).
The pictures are BY FAR a higher quality than my last camera, I just know they can be even better if I can ever figure out what the hell i’m doing.
This is where you come in.
ANY advice on what i’m doing wrong, or how to fix certain things (ie: exposure in low light, flash intensity, focusing with no flash, etc) would be greatly appreciated.
Just know that the few examples I will now show you are the “best of the worst”
The obvious problems I am having are over-exposure, flash intensity, focusing in low light.. flash in low light, etc. My house is full of low light unfortunately. so something I NEED to know how to do is to take pictures (good ones) in that setting.
So have at it, more experienced camera users! What can I do to be BETTER? I know I need to read more about my camera and its attributes, but I feel like you all could get me on the right track.
