After all my research yesterday, I thought I would be able to try shooting on manual today. It did not go well at all. I went into my backyard before sunset to try and take some pictures of my dogs. They were all turning out very dark and I couldn't figure out how to fix the settings on my camera. The sun started setting, making my pictures even worse than they already were. So, I decided to go figure out how to change the settings. By the time I figured out how my camera worked, it was too dark to go take pictures. Overall, my first time on manual was pretty disastrous.
