So many blogs have shared tips on photography and most of them start with "Get out of AUTO mode." Yikes. I thought to myself "My AUTO pictures are just fine, thank you very much."
Then Cathy, of My 1929 Charmer, returned from the Haven Conference and posted what she learned in a photography seminar. Easy as pie! It was broken down into Do this. Do this other thing. Go take pictures. Well, maybe a little more complex than that, but simple simple simple.

I've been practicing with the manual mode and getting better at it. My camera is pretty old - the How-To mentions F16 but I can only go up to F8. None the less, I am still getting better shots.
This is a shot I had considered to be pretty good at the time.
Here is a new shot done on the manual setting.
What fun! I went around the house and took a few shots before heading outdoors.
I have a thing for metal and glass and I love looking at the light reflecting through.
This awesome mirror was found on a junking trip and many months later I came across the hand mirror. I had them both for quite a while before I realized how much they complimented each other. Now I have 2 more mirror duos ready to hang. Well, one's a trio.
And then I went outside.
I'm giving you a sneak peak at a couple nightstands that are almost ready for my booth. I thought nightstands would be nice with my coffee dresser so here they are. Almost.
I'll finish the nightstands and show what the second one says in a couple days. Meanwhile, knock yourselves out guessing!
