I’ve been spending a lot of time at Versailles lately.Every time someone comes into town to visit, I end up at Versailles at some point or another. I’m beginning to know the place up and down. The first time I went I tried to shoot mostly in manual, but couldn’t do anything outside because the pictures were continuously overexposed. The next time I ended up at Versailles I had a lens filter which made shooting in manual at all times much easier.
These first pictures are a mix of manual and automatic:
These ones were taken the next time I went with a lens filter.
The differences may not be visible to some, but for the person taking the picture I’d compare it to driving an automatic vs. driving a stick. You get more control and precision with the manual, can’t wait to see what I can do with my photos now!
