Hi everyone! This is my very first post so please cut me some slack if I have technical difficulties putting up my photos...
I got a Canon Rebel a few years ago but never learned how to use it until 2 months ago. Embarrassing, I know. I took a workshop given by a local photographer (who did my maternity/baby pics) & the idea of the class was to teach you enough basics so you can get out of auto mode. I started shooting in manual 2 months ago and I am really enjoying learning to use my camera. I've always been really into looking at photography, I love photographer blogs & I could look at images all day (especially of weddings/brides/babies/family) and always wished I knew how to produce that kind of art myself.
So anyway, I'm using a Canon 50mm 1.4 lens. These pictures are sooc, no post processing at all or anything like that. I'd love to work on my images but first I want to practice how to use my camera. I wouldn't even know where to start with post anyway. The party was at noon, overcast/cloudy sky & it was my first time shooting something other than my 1 year old My friend has a daughter about the same age as mine so I figured her party would be a good opportunity for me to practice & she could get some pictures out of it. I was kind of behind the scenes, letting family get in front for photo ops - I'm not sure how a professional who is getting paid handles those types of situations but I didn't want to get in anyone's way.
Please don't be too hard on me, I'm just proud of myself for using manual. LOL. A pipe dream of mine is to have a blog and maybe make some extra change once in awhile but baby steps! First thing is to learn my camera. Hahahaha!
I look forward to chatting & learning from you!
