Let’s be honest. When we all move from a simple point and shoot camera to a dslr it can be intimidating.. right? Like what are all those settings? What does AV stand for? What is ISO? Then we think maybe I’ll just set it on auto cause I don’t know what I am doing! It can be frustrating. Especially when you just forked out some $$$ for a camera you thought could really help you take those amazing shots of your little ones.
I was a point and shoot gal at one time. After learning and practicing I was able to upgrade to a pro dslr. It does take time to really understand your camera and lighting etc. But hey it’s worth some practice! I have a few friends and even clients who tell me I just got a dslr and I really want to learn. All I shoot is in AUTO!
