Does your point and shoot give you manual exposure options?

 

It has the option to adjust ISO speed, so...yes? It looks like that, shutter speed, and aperture all fall under the term exposure? But I don't see options for the latter two.

 

Yeah. Do a fair bit of reading on the basics, shoot a lot, do more in depth reading to improve on things you're struggling with, shoot a lot more, repeat, repeat, repeat. The more photos you take, the more mistakes/successes you will have and the more comfortable you're going to be getting the photo you want instead of just the photo that the camera is producing for you in full auto, or however you've been shooting.

 

Don't be afraid to shoot the same photo a handful (or a whole bunch) of times with various settings/angles/framing/etc. Then, assuming you have access to a program that shows exif data, look at that information when you're reviewing your photos and figure out what is and isn't working for specific photos. With a bit of reading and practice, you'll quickly start seeing how you can shoot the same photo, from the same angle, with the same framing and simply by changing some of your settings/focal points/etc, end up with drastically different photos. Or how a slight change to your angle or framing can absolutely make or break a photo.

 

Most of this info is assuming you have manual exposure options. If not, and you're semi serious about doing photography, there are a shitload of cheap, starter options I'm sure we can throw out to you to get the ball rolling.

 

I've started doing more research. I've got the "shoot a lot" part down, just the more technical stuff is foreign. If you guys have more to say, as to not take up thread space, feel free to PM me. Or, if you think this info could help more users of course keep it public, I just don't want to hijack the thread for my learning purposes.

 

Thanks yall.

Meep meep. Herro 12oz!

I have been playing around with film lately.

It is fun and often does not turn out the way that I want it to.

These are taken with dat Pentax Honeywell SP1000.

It's a pretty easy little camera to use for a rookie like me self.

I used almost every light I had in the house to er illuminate this right hur.

Did not work out well. Really out of focus. I do like the color going on tho.
