Over the past 10 months we’ve meandered through a number of challenges in the hopes of trying to understand both our cameras and how to use them to get better photos.

We started off with using the presets in month 1, and reviewed and linked up our results.

We had a small detour into good camera practices just after that.

In challenge 2 we started to look at the triangle of light, beginning with aperture, and reviewed and linked up our results.

In the interim, we also learned how to white balance our 50 shades of grey.

On our next side of the triangle of light, we hit shutter speed, and reviewed and linked up our results.

Next we took a moment to check out photo quality and stability.

At last we hit the final side of the triangle of light, ISO, and reviewed and linked up our results.

For our next trick, we tackled using the camera in full manual mode, and reviewed and linked up our results.

Having mastered the settings on our cameras, we then went looking for inspiration, and reviewed and linked up our results.

After this, we started looking at lighting, beginning with natural light outdoors, and reviewed and linked up our results.

We followed this up with using natural light indoors, and reviewed and linked up our results.

Lastly we looked at using artificial light indoors, and reviewed and linked up our results.

I hope you’ve enjoyed these challenges, and even if you didn’t get to try them out within the timeframe, that they’ve helped you with taking photos going forwards.  I do love it when I see people all excited that they’ve got great photos after discovering a new technique!
