Remember when I said that I got a new camera? My goal has always been to use it to it's full potential, which means getting it out of auto mode. Yesterday was the first time I've been able to use it outside in the sunlight.
I'll admit, I've been really frustrated so far. Indoors, I just can't get the lighting right without making it grainy. But talking to a bunch of photographer friends, apparently it's really hard to do without an external flash/studio lighting. So I started feeling better. These are what I shot yesterday. I'm happy with them, but know I have a lot to learn.
After I snapped these, I did put the camera in the car and hop in the pool with the family. And yes, I'm one of those preggos who will rock a two piece the entire pregnancy. Belly bump and all ;P
