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 – Lily discovered the joy of washing dishes! Now she asks to help wash all the time.
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 – I LOVE it when my kids read books together. Even when they do it sitting on top of the table.
Jan 25 – Michael laughing at Lily. I don’t remember what she was doing really, but Michael thought it was hilarious.
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 – 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 – 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.
