(End of week update…they didn’t show up! 34 is his largest so...

The Unabridged, Slightly Edited, Ugly Story Of How I Moved To Manual Mode

I held my fancy, big-girl camera, set to Auto. I knew it had more potential. I saw other people’s photos. I knew those undefined letters – P, M, AV, TV – held some sort of mystical magic behind them. If I could just figure them out. I’d owned it for 4 years. It was time. I did an internet search or two. Keep in mind, the story I’m sharing started about nine years...
