Week 4

I’m so proud of myself, I’m still keeping up! This week I’ve been practicing in full manual mode, and I really feel like it’s good for me. It makes me slower, because there’s so many more things I need to check before I can click, so I’m still using aperture priority sometimes. But more and more I’m in manual, and I like it. I don’t know if my pictures are improving yet, but I’d like to think that at least they’re not getting worse. Let me know what you think.

Jan 22

Jan 22 – Lily discovered the joy of washing dishes! Smile Now she asks to help wash all the time.

Jan 23

Jan 23 – Playing with my settings and trying to find the best light in my house. I think I could have had her facing the light more and less of her face would have been in shadow. Next time.

Jan 24

Jan 24 – I LOVE it when my kids read books together. Even when they do it sitting on top of the table.

Jan 25

Jan 25 – Michael laughing at Lily. I don’t remember what she was doing really, but Michael thought it was hilarious.

Jan 26

Jan 26 – Pretty kitty. The kids crowded around the car she/he was sitting on and just would not leave. They love animals, and especially dogs and cats.

Jan 27

Jan 27 – I think this is my favorite picture so far this year. I could not believe how unbelievably pink the sky was that night. It was glorious. I wish sunsets lasted longer and I wish I had a more clear view of them from our house!

Jan 28

Jan 28 – This little girl is completely adorable, and Michael is pretty taken with her too. Every time he sees her he starts yelling and pointing, “Baby, baby, baby!” I love it.

Your photos look great! I love the close-up of Lily. I too have been shooting in full manual for a little while now. It's scary, but liberating as well. :)

Great job Em! I remember that sunset it was beautiful! Lydia also yells baby whenever she sees one whether in person or on a magazine lol it's funny

I loved that sunset too, I was walking home that night and wished I had a camera with me, because let's face it, a cell phone is just no good for something like that. I love these pictures and love that you are keeping the weekly posts up!
