I have learned so much from this course it's hard to know where to start. Reading the camera manual and getting out of auto mode is very important. Take your time and take stock of your surroundings before you shoot. Make sure your camera gear is in good working order before you leave the house. Shoot at the long end of your lens, it's the only way to go
Experiment with lighting, different priorities i.e., shutter, aperture, and ISO. Experiment with lighting. If something doesn't work the first time try, try again. Have faith and confidence in yourself. Bokeh is great!!! Don't crop to close when you shoot. I've also learned that there are a lot of very talented people who took this course, I hope that you all continue to excel at your craft. Thanks Carien for reawakening my love of photography, I'm ready for the next assignment
