...with my camera that is!
This past Christmas Santa brought me a new camera, a Canon Rebel XSi. Prior to I'd been using my trusty Canon PowerShot, which is still my diaper bag camera. Now I love my PowerShot, but it was a bit beat up from years of "use & toss" and the battery didn't last very long either.
I don't know what it is with the new Canon, but I can't always get it to focus on what I want. Sometimes it'll focus on some small detail and blur the little pumpkin out or the whole picture will be less than crisp. I'm not sure if it's the lens (18-55mm) - I've been thinking of getting the 50mm I originally planned to get - the settings, the mode, or the fact that my most frequent subject is a wiggly 2 year old. Any suggestions??
So since I've been trying to practice, Grace and I went to the grounds of an old house turned events hall yesterday. The weather was beautiful and it was fun to run around the property's gardens chasing after the little pumpkin and thinking about what the place was like years ago.
This is my favorite shot from the day - CLASSIC Grace these days! Little bit of attitude, LOTS of sweetness! And some other fun ones...
Her hair looks so long in these pictures! Looking for a PINK butterfly (since there was an orange/brown one around :) Love those pouty lips and that inquisitive look Silly Goose! My little pumpkin is growing up **sniff, sniff**
