My life is not that photogenic. But I do occasionally go to interesting places and I

In my own defense, it was pouring down rain. But as my husband would say, “sounds like a development opportunity.” (That’s Amazon speak for get your shit together.)
So next week I’m taking a 2-hour seminar entitled “How to Use the Manual Settings on Your DSLR.” I’m so excited! I hope it will give me the confidence to experiment with all those settings…
