Basics.  When I first began, it seemed like there was so much to learn. And there is a lot about photography that can be daunting. However, like the wise owl responded when asked “How do you eat an Elephant?” “One bit at a time,” he replied.

So, if we take it piece by piece, one item at a time we should be fine.

How does one get it?

First, lets live within who we are. Some people are Right brain orientated, some are Left. Do you know where you fall. Are you an Engineer type or an Artist? Looking at what you do now will help determine that.

If you are a nuts & bolts person? An engineer type? You may well pick up the relationships between Aperture, Shutter Speed, and ISO quickly and that is fine.

If you are more into art and design, you may wish to set your camera on point and shoot and begin recording images – Aperture Priority will work for you.

For both cases, patience with yourself will be the key to moving forward. Become like a sponge, take in as much as you have time for and accept your progress as it develops – then suddenly one day, it will all come together. Trust in that, take a lot of images and look at a lot of pictures by others that are known to be good.
