Nikon Book

Originally uploaded by mrsduryee

This book, which I purchased with a birthday gift card from my aunt and uncle, is saving my sanity as I try to learn how to use my camera.

I have no patience for learning to do things. I just want to be good. I don’t mind practicing, so long as it’s fun and it still looks good. My manual, which is hard to read anyway, only told me how to do things. This book is teaching me, with beautiful photos to boot, why I would want to do the things my camera is capable of.

Sorry for ending a sentence with a preposition.

  • Yeah I’ve been thinking of getting a book too. The manual that comes with the camera is not super helpful because it’s like reading a history book. Dull.

    🙂 Glad you’re having fun with your cam!

    • Yeah. Mine doesn’t tell me WHY I would use certain settings. This book does a lot of comparing the camera’s fancy setting verses doing it manually. I love it.
