Inspired by my friend Jon and his camera lessons, I started remembering my days of manual photography. Starting when I was eight, that’s all I knew. I hadn’t held an automatic until I got digital. Then, complaining all the while about lack of flexibility, I succumbed to the digital age.
So it felt amazingly freeing to go out yesterday and use some of the old techniques I had learned. I was fascinated! I put the camera on “manual” everything and played. Of course there were more than a few moments where I waited for the camera to do the thing I had got used to – but those were just moments.
Is there something you knew how to do that you still know. Something you haven’t thought about? Can you be inspired? Tell me. Write me a note, a comment and I’ll pick one and send a print of something old/new to you.
