I also took these photos on manual mode this afternoon with an aperture of f1.8 and various ISO and shutter speeds. See what I mean? Confusing jargon. I am definitely still learning. And yes, I took notes from those blogs on my iPhone and yes, I reference those notes while I'm out taking photos. Nerd alert!
In other news, this wee little girl has been making her presence known this week! I have had flutters and butterflies of movement the past few weeks but I was looking forward to feeling something stronger. On my husband's birthday last Monday, I had my hand on my belly and, all of a sudden, she gave me three strong kicks right where my hand was. It was like she was saying, "Hello! I'm here! Wish Dad a happy birthday for me!"
It was so magical! I will always remember Lee's 3__th birthday as the day I felt our baby's first real kicks!
If you have a DSLR (or SLR), do you shoot in manual mode? You are probably more brave than me. I just found all the different settings so confusing! But the first step in learning something is leaving your comfort zone and trying new things! At least it's a digital camera and I'm not going through a ton of film.
**I've entered these photos into the final Shades of Autumn photo challenge on Project Alicia. It's been a fun way to challenge myself with my photography! Hopefully they do another one soon.**
