Camera Practice

It’s that time of year when I begin to think about the Minnesota State Fair Fine Arts competition. It has become quite a competitive experience, with photography a popular entry category . I have decided to focus more on experimenting and learning than the possibility of being selected to exhibit (less daunting) and am working on using the camera set to ‘manual’ in an effort to learn more about the art of photography. The cats are being very receptive models to that end!
