and I love it ;D
Thank you instructors for the push to leave my Auto mode security blanket! I knew when I got this camera I would have a lot of learning to do, but I had no idea that it would start to happen so quickly! I think subconciously I was afraid I'd "break" something by experimenting but the "clear settings" feature is a huge relief.
I love the challenge of finding time and subjects for each lesson and working a deadline, which is a big motivator.
Thank you for helping me get out of the "Auto Zone"!
You're welcome. I feel like I'm cheating now if I use the auto modes. LOL

I was exactly the same way when I got my Nikon D50. I was so afraid I'd break something, that I shot in Auto exclusively. Now, I'm always on Manual when I have the time to compose my shots. As I mentioned in another post... is there a time to use Auto??? Yes. If I'm out hiking and something spectacular happens, like a bald eagle flies overhead, and I don't have time to compose the shot manually and I don't want to miss the shot completely, I'll shoot on Auto. But honestly, I never get the results in Auto that I can achieve with manual settings
Keep pushing that envelope, you'll get better and better with your camera!!!
