Today we are going to talk about the boring stuff. 

Here it is in a nutshell. . . 

READ THE MANUAL

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz 

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.
