These photos are one of the reasons I’ve wanted to get a DSLR camera. I enjoy taking videos, but for me, there is something so intriguing about a still photo. A good quality still photo. Okay, okay, even a bad photo holds a special “something” that a video doesn’t. I haven’t had much time to play with my new camera, but I have been using it every chance I get. Now that we have resumed homeschooling, blogging and photography have been moved to the bottom of the list. But hey, a little practice is better than none! 🙂
I know these photos are not great. I need to figure out the right level of exposure. I just noticed that I can adjust the white balance to various settings – cloudy, shade, incandescent, etc – I can’t wait to try this feature. I have been enjoying the ability to take continuous photos – hold down the shutter and it snaps one picture right after the next. This is a great feature for capturing motion. I took these pictures using the shutter priority mode on my camera, which has been much trickier for me to figure out than the aperture priority mode. All that to say, I was extremely enthusiastic about these results! The kids were willing to jump on the trampoline so I could practice, despite the chilly weather. Oh! And I have not altered these photos at all, other than to re-size them for a quicker upload. Thanks for looking at my amateur photography.
