Manual Mode

Back around tax return time, I bought myself a DSLR. I love my Nikon, she makes me happy. I've been learning from books, online, and practice. Up until this past weekend, I've been too big of a baby to try out Manual.

There is Manual or Auto. Auto lets your camera decide settings for you, but sometimes those aren't the settings you want. With Manual, you decided just how much light is let into your camera, and how long the shutter is open.

I love me some natural light, so we went outside for a bit this morning. I brought my camera out and practiced a little. I've fallen in love with Manual, and I'm getting the hang of it. :)

So the following is just picture overload of my practicing. Feel free to click the pictures and enlarge them. I really love the way her eyes pop.

I told you our lawn was ridiculously yellow. We don't even have a tree... it's our neighbors. Oh well, it makes for pretty pictures. :)

Woo! Lexi these are great! I think you're getting really good with that Manual mode!

Sigh, I wish I had a DSLR.
