Shooting Manual – Rose


I was blessed with a 50mm 1.8 lens for Christmas. Have I told you all how much I love my husband? I probably don’t need to tell you how he spoils me. Anywho.

I am so very happy with how manual exposure is starting to click with me with this lens.  I never knew what a difference a fixed focal point could make.

I am so very unhappy with my eye. Well, frustrated is more like it. I am exposing better, but since I am focusing manually, it is taking time to find my focusing eye. When you are manually focusing, you need to pay attention to the details. See the little things.

The above rose is my favorite shot so far.

Blessings to you on this day, Vicki
