Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life
I am quite excited to share these pictures, not only because they were taken around the time of our little one's first birthday, but also because I'm learning how to use our camera at last! We have a great camera (a Nikon D90), but I've only ever used it in a "point and shoot" way. Now I'm learning how to use the manual focus, adjust depth of field, set the shutter speed and set the white balance. It's made photo taking a lot of fun this week as I've been experimenting with different settings. I still have a lot to learn, but I have many pretty, happy, funny and real objects on which to practice!
