I intend on documenting my various learning journeys with a fair amount of photos and videos. I’ve had a DSLR camera for a while but have always shot on AUTO. I feel it’s about time I studied my DSLR’s manual, got a firm grasp of the foundations of photography and started improving these skills. I have no desire to become a professional photographer or videographer, so getting to an intermediate level in about 6 months feels right to me.
