"Just Say No to Auto"- I did and I love it!

A few months ago I got a DSLR camera. I loved it immediately but was completely overwhelmed!

Enter Kristen Duke Photography and “Just Say No to Auto

Kristen was kind of enough to let me review her book and let me tell you it is my go-to resource! I learned more from her book in 5 minutes than I did from reading my entire camera instruction manual.

I went from overwhelmed to understanding and using my camera in manual mode in minutes

She helps you choose the perfect settings for any situation and provides example settings to help you get started. I have a lot more to learn but now I’m confident enough to shoot in manual!

Because a baby is only 1-day old once and you don’t want to miss the moment…

this my straight out of the camera image (no edits)

Because cheesy grins deserve to be perfectly captured…

Say goodbye to dark images and learn what your camera is capable of!

Available in e-Book for just $10!

Trust me- if you are still shooting in Auto you are really missing out!

And it turns out Manual isn’t as scary as I thought:)

    I’m so glad she did this, I love manual, it gives you so much control over your image and it really is very simple. (I agree that the instruction manual isn’t really any help, except maybe to professionals, of which I am not.)
