Playing with my camera!

Again, I have been having so much fun with this camera! I can't wait for the weather to warm up enough to actually go somewhere of mention so I can play even more. All I have now is kids who go from the house to the car to the store and back to the house. Boring! We did find ourselves yesterday at cousin Austin's house so I snapped a few shots. Boy are 14 month old boys squirmy! I should know, I've had two of them. But here are a few of those shots. I just love black and white. And amongst all the squirmyness, I think these turned out pretty fair.

Nice! Try making your shutter speed faster ... because I think you said your aperture was opened as far as your lens would allow. A faster shutter speed could make the pictures sharper.

I'm SO excited about this. I hope you update this blog frequently. Also, you don't have to go anywhere "exciting" to practice and get good pictures. Your yard is awesome. You could even get some cute ones of the boys in the car and practice with the way the light gets in the windows. Remember all the pictures I got of Emma at the grocery store? And that was before I really "got" shutter speed -- I was just practicing with the aperture settings. I'm sure it'd be harder to really fiddle with the camera when you have two toddlers as opposed to just a little crawler like my munchkin, but whatever.

Anyway, take a ton of pictures and keep practicing and sharing them on here! I will come back all the time and comment and critique (and I expect you to do the same for my photog blog). :)


And by the way, my "word" here is FULTZE. Just fyi.
