Photography thoughts

This is my thought: I suck!
You should see the behind the scenes of each post I do. I take a million and one pictures and then I pick one or two that are not as horrible as the rest.
example:

 I'm always looking at tips from others but I don't seem to get it...or I don't let it sink in. I feel like I need to attend a photography class...The only reason why I have resisted is because everything else I have done I have never had to take a class, I'm always able to figure it out on my own. I never took a class for crocheting or sewing but I'm thinking I need one for photography :(  I have yet to grasp the concept... But the cost is alot! Some of the Online classes can be around $200!!
So until I get great I have to apologize, I have been looking thru my photos and I'm so sorry If I have blinded you!  And here I am posting them again:
I'm posting these as my "what you don't want your photos to look like"
K-so I am done beating myself up and have acknowledged that I'm a horrible photography...now all I can do is go up right? 
I have found these links from some very generous bloggers ( i couldn't find there blog buttons)  And I hope they can help me get better photo's.

  1. Aw don't stress it just takes practice. What camera are you using? I use a canon rebel xs from time to time. Here's a link to one of my blog posts I did with some of my good photos : http://katharinedianne.blogspot.com/2012/01/all-about-cars.html

    Depending on what camera you are using you can set the focus to manual and just adjust the focus on the one item.

  2. Thanks for commenting on my blog :) It just takes practice. I only shoot in manual, sometimes with flash/auto if I just can't get the picture right in manual. But really all I do is shoot in Manual mode, make sure the lighting around me is decent. Then I adjust the settings a little. If you're worried about the pictures turning out a little blurry due to light, just adjust the ISO to a higher number..like 800 or 1600..but the higher you go on that, the grainer the picture will be. I just added you to fb so if you'd like to chat about it we can :)

  3. Oh my gosh you are not alone... I feel your frustration 100%!... guh! I feel like I can't get a good picture without my flash but I'm FOREVER seeing people taking AMAZING pictures without their flash... sigh... Thanks for being honest and open about it... because sometimes I feel I'm the only who gets frustrated :D
