When I was first handed a camera by Mark I was a little overwhelmed. He told me the basics and put the camera on Automatic mode so it wasn’t too much at one time. Fast forward a couple of months later and while shooting with him one day he went over the functions of the camera, changed it’s shooting mode. Mark said there you go! Oh goodness, now it’s for real and I’m nervous. But, it opened up a whole new world. Something I could change and control and have fun with! It was amazing to think of what I wanted to achieve and tell the camera to do just that. After that I don’t know how I could have or anyone shoots in Automatic mode. Mark made sure I understood how the differences were when letting me go off on my own.
