the other day i wanted to practice shooting on manual since i haven't had a lot of time to take my camera out and really explore with it. i headed out to dana point harbor and started snapping away, changing settings until i liked what i saw, and then changed them some more. it was a gloomy afternoon, which made it a bit more challenging, but i'm happy with how some of my pictures turned out. i still have a long way to go with this whole camera thing, but i'm learning more and more each time i take that baby out. can't wait for my next photo adventure!
