I had an opportunity to go out and put some of the stuff I'd learnt to practice over the weekend.
This is the first time with any camera I've been out to shoot some stuff in manual mode.
I'm pretty happy with the results. Sadly they're under exposed but I have an idea of what to do next time. The colours on the Nikon D3200 display seem to be pretty inaccurate compared to when I look at them blown up on my PC though.
