I have been taking pictures of everything that moves in this house... which is just children. I was particularly excited about this challenge from last week. I did discover it is hard to get your models to hold still while you are trying to figure out aperture, shutter speed and ISO. This first shot I love (even though it's not perfect). Peyton was running outside and I got her up stop for a moment in front of our white fence and I just love the blown out look. I shot all of these with an ISO of 800 (I did play around with ISO 1600 but I felt like my pictures were too grainy and I like to print them BIG to scrap book them)
This one I shot with a low f stop 5.6(that gave me the blown out background) and my camera adjusts the shutter speed when I change the aperture in the mode I was using (A). I really could have done a higher f-stop but she was moving too fast for me to readjust. Oh well.
These next two pictures don't show anything great other than the lighting is pretty good and I didn't shoot them on AUTO. I have found I don't even like how pictures look on auto now that I know I can adjust the lighting with other methods.
If you want to learn more about your camera you should join up too. Go visit Lolli at Better In Bulk (she uses a Canon) and visit Beth at Manic Mother (she uses a Nikon). They both are very great and have awesome tips!
