    So I was thinking about this today.

    If there's anybody out here in SD that wouldn't mind getting together to help me learn how to shoot in Manual mode, I would LOVE you forever! I'm more of the type of person that learns better from one-on-one. Soooo..Is there anybody out here that wouldn't mind teaching me?

    I will drive to you! I just need help!

    Thanks, Haley

    Maybe it's just me but I think that most people are against meeting with a complete stranger to teach them something for free. There is so much information on the internet. Just read a lot and experiment.

    Experience is the best teacher.

    No, there is no one in San Diego. It's all just an illusion. ;)

    Perhaps if you had not included this, "I'm more of the type of person that learns better from one-on-one."

    Try a FlickR or a Photography meetup.com group. People go to these events wanting to help people.

    internet = best tool. I've learned almost everything I know thanks to the internet, dvds and books.

    Well the main season I said that "I'm the type of person that learns better from one-on-one" is because for one, I'm a stay at home mom. My husband works full time, so it's mostly my son and I..I bought the book "Understanding Exposure" but honestly..I don't have the time to read it.

    Also, I would have to read the book more than once to understand anything. Just like anything I've learned, It's easier for me if somebody is there to show and explain to me what each thing is about.

    Uhh...Don't photographers meet with "strangers" every time they do a photoshoot?

    Sure you do. You're just not motivated.

    It would take a whole lot longer for someone to show you how to shoot in manual mode than it would take you to read "Understanding Exposure" - 20 times over.

    I'm sure you can't sit down a read it all in one shot, but other wise, "I don't have the time to read it" is just a really lame excuse, IMO.

    With me, if I don't read it in one shot, I won't take in anything.
    But I just enrolled into a class here in SD so maybe somebody there will help me. 3 hour class for 10 dollars..Can't go wrong.
