M | Manual Mode

I must get into M mode on my SLR. End of story, must, must, must. I am great in P mode (who isn't?) and dabble in AV and TV mode. So over the next several days my head will be buried into the content from this class (took it last session, but didn't finish) and this book: Understanding Exposure: How to Shoot Great Photographs with a Film or Digital Camera (Updated Edition) I had a shoot last week and I was frustrated with over exposure...gotta be on M to control that and other things!

What happens though when you are forcing yourself to do this on what used to be your handy camera?? You pick up point shoot! HA! I have this camera: Canon PowerShot SD880IS 10MP Digital Camera with 4x Wide Angle Optical Image Stabilized Zoom (Silver) Not sure why Amazon has it listed for $999 though, that is more than double the price I bought it for last year. But I am loving this little camera right now - I have it in P mode and I can just shoot what ever when ever. Can you tell that I am fighting this whole manual mode thing??

I had a quick trip into Portland today - love downtown/Pearl area. I was inspired/reminded by this gal to bring along my camera and take the every day pictures...

I think that the Portland area really blooms this time of year - September & October happen to be some of my favorite months in the NW.

Back to the books - enjoy life!
