With Camera In Hand ~ finally learning to shoot on manual mode.

August 12, 2017 · 2 comments

It’s no secret I love to take photos.  (Just ask my girls and they’ll roll their eyes for you.)  I’ve owned a Nikon D5100 (DLSR) for years and taken most of the photo on this blog with it.  But alas, always on the automatic setting.  I’ve tried to learn about aperture, ISO and shutter speeds – but it’s always left me with a confused headache and potentially rolling my own eyes.   Until now that is.  With the help of With Camera In Hand I am finally shooting in manual mode …. and I like it!






The clarity of colour and the ability to freeze time have me hooked.  I have a lot of learning to go – but Michelle from With Camera in Hand has managed to make it all seem easy – so far.   I’ve already managed to shoot equally as good pictures as those I’ve previously shot on automatic or on my phone. And it feels amazing. 

Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still

Wow! great shots. I’m a great proponent of shooting on manual mode, coz I think I’ve always felt the need to have more control over the DSLR settings. However, my needs are unique because I usually record videos and upload to my blog.

I’m trying to curate blogs and articles on YouTubers and their cameras. Feel free to take a peek if you like 🙂
