195/366 A bit of a dilemma

I haven’t checked, but I am pretty sure there’s another post that has the title “A bit of a dilemma”. I have actually, no really, taken the Tom Ang Digital Photography Masterclass book of the shelf and opened it. Of course, I haven’t bothered with the pre-amble, and have gone straight to the assignment. The first set of tasks relates to City lights – and to be honest, that is as much as I know. Except, part of the assignment is to explore different camera settings. I’m just not sure how easy that is to do with the iphone. I bet there’s an app that will give a proper manual mode. Should I explore that?

Of course, upstairs I have a very nice Nikon D5300, OK not a top of the range, in only just slightly more than entry level, but it is a Nikon, and I’ve always wanted to own one, and now that I have one I have barely used it over the last three years. Using that would be much easier for accessing the different camera modes, but of course, it does mean more bulk to carry in the morning, although I do have a very comfortable camera strap. The other problem as well, is with the strap, it’s fiddly to use the tripod, and with any kind of low light photography, I really do need to use a tripod.

It seems that doing the exercises in the book provides a perfect opportunity to re-familiarise myself with the Nikon. I’ve recharged the batteries, and all seems OK. I’m going to give a try I think. I may have to get the manual out – I’ve forgotten some of the things.

Now, as I said earlier the first set of tasks relate to city lights. As you might imagine the photographs in the book will be of somewhere like Leicester Square. What do I have? Gosport High Street! Actually, there is quite a variation of lights there. Perhaps not to London’s scale, but different.

Now, the other thing is timing. I’m going to have to read the assignment properly, which means I have to dedicate some time to properly read the assignment. I think that’s a weekend thing.
