Today we are going to talk about the boring stuff.
Here it is in a nutshell. . .
READ THE MANUAL
Did I lose you????
Honestly, I think I lost me.
Here’s the truth of the matter: I tried to start my photography journey without reading the manual. In fact, when my new camera came in the mail – I threw the manual out with the shipping box.
Who needs the manual right?
Only nerds read and keep manuals.
This, I know as truth.
My Fisherman husband . . . would have not only kept that manual – he would have filed it.
Honestly, I tried hard to get away without reading the thing and then one day I met a photographer friend at the park. I told her all about my struggles and I was not getting those pretty shots I wanted so badly. The first thing she asked was:
Did you read the manual?
I looked at her and gave her a quiet “no”
She simply told me I really needed to read it if I wanted to get anywhere with my photography.
At the end of the day, I went home and found the manual I needed online and, I started the very daunting and very boring task of reading the manual.
When I was finally ready an upgrade in the world of Nikon – I not only kept the manual to my new camera when I finished it – I gave it to the Fisherman and asked him to file it. It lives somewhere safe upstairs with all his other manuals.
Long story short: and I know it’s boring and hard but, if you want to get anywhere in your photography. . .
You have to read the manual.
