Before I continue, I’d like to point out for those of you who think I’m talking about firearms, the title is likely still true – but this one’s about cameras. Just sayin’.

Sunset & Fountains

A Kihei Sunset

If there’s one thing I’d like to do this year, it’s to figure out how to take better pictures. I’ve always been interested in photography since I can remember, so it’s a shame that I feel that I’m limited to whatever an AUTO mode on a camera can provide me. Further complicating matters is my need to learn by seeing & doing (a Kinesthetic learner for those keeping score at home), so simply reading the manual or a book doesn’t quite cut it.

I’ve had some thought that going on a photowalk with someone would probably be best, but considering the cost of such events from the pros, not sure it’s all in the cards. So how else does someone become as good as a photographer as Rob Masefield or Allie Henze? Keeping trying? Yep… going to have to do that. But I’m also thinking there are other avenues.

Suggestions anyone?

Update: For those asking, I currently use a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT and a Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS.
