I hope you had a Happy Halloween.

We don’t celebrate Halloween the big way (parties and trick-or-treating) here in Taiwan but you do see seasonal decorations up in many restaurants and cafes, just for the fun of it. These are taken with my newly acquired Canon FTb and let’s just say I have a lot to learn about aperture and shutter speed, especially since I’m using the camera without metering.

A little more than half of my pictures came out very underexposed – but now I know how to avoid that, nothing comes close to learning after mistakes. I’m really happy with those that did turn out and very excited about what this little old camera can do!

  1. Hi Katie, your photos are always amazing especially you dont need to use the metering of the camera. I have two SLRs; but sadly both of them lost the metering function after using for a while. I always think of finding another camera and feel lack of confident using the two. However your post here makes me want to give them a try and moving forward without the metering, and I’ll share the result with you sometimes. Thank you ^^

    1. Hello May! I am so sorry for the late reply – please do share when you have the photographs. I think once you get used to not using the metering you start to wonder what it was there for in the first place. It’s really easy, I am sure you will be great! :)
