Ask Darlene Anything – Facebook Live Q&A

Today I held my first ever Facebook Live event where I did a little Q&A. If you joined in and watched, thank you!

Watch the video recording where I answered seven questions that came in from you, the Digital Photo Mentor readers. If I didn't get to your question, don't despair! I hope to be doing one of these every two weeks so I can answer a few each time and will get to yours soon.

During the live event, I mentioned a few articles so, as promised, here are some links to the things I mentioned.

Finally, if you are a beginner and want to really make progress, I recommend this exercise. Using your camera every day will help you advance faster than almost anything else. You'll be able to adjust the settings without taking the camera away from your eye or going into the menu system. Once you have mastered all the buttons on your camera (one at a time) you can work on learning about light, composition, and all the aesthetic aspects of photography.

Want to get off Auto? Use your camera every day and learn about every button and setting. Then you can work on using the elusive Manual Mode. Give yourself a break and take baby steps. 

If you want to get more photography challenges – sign up for my free ebook “10 Photography Challenges – get better pictures without buying more gear) – look for the big orange box in the right-hand column that says “YES I want the free eBook”. You will also get weekly articles, monthly newsletters, and information on upcoming photography workshops and tours. We only have 2 spots left for Morocco so if you want to join Daniel on that tour, don't wait.

Watch for another Facebook live Q&A event on the Digital Photo Mentor page in about 2 weeks (July 18th tentatively)!
