Hello, So I got my 1st dslr, read a book about exposure, and have been taking a lot of photos. I've woke up early to shoot some old barns and stuff, took some Christmas photos of kids, other things around the yard to "practice". When I do this I have a hard time focusing on the learning process. What I mean is that when I go out to take photos and try to develop my skills I feel like I am all over the place. Should I be worried about deep of field and sharpness, should I isolate the subject, where to take light reading to make the most creative shot, etc..? Any suggestion on methods used when you were in the beginning stages to really develop yourself as a photographer?
