"The only way to learn is by making the mistakes"
When I came back I was a little frustrated because I still didn't understand how the aperture worked or how to combine it with the shutter speed to create the best exposure. Happily, I was not the only one having problems, everyone was stressed.
Ike told us that the only way we were going to learn ow to combine the ISO, APERTURE and SHUTTER SPEED. As we make the mistakes and understand the errors little by little we will learn how to combine them and then it will come automatically.
Many people are scared to fail and make mistakes but really this is the only way of learning. I will admit I was frustrated and stressed at the beginning because I didn't get the shots I wanted. I did get very bad pictures but like this I was able to learn better how to manage my camera and the lights.
The task was to take 3 pictures of a pencil in a white paper applying everything we learned from ISO, APERTURE, SHUTTER SPEED, white lights, shadows and focus. I didn't like the pictures I took of the pencil so I am planning to repeat this homework, now that I understand more the tools in my caera I can play more with the pencil and worry less about the light.
