i did it!
i said no to auto folks! and i am so happy i did!
[next, i am totally investing in photo shop!]
so, without editing at all, i am going to show you a few things i did these last few days while saying no to auto ...
first, i learned how to slow down my shutter speed and create the eversocool
and the water was not just dripping.,,,
it was ON!
i was so pleased!
sure, a few photos came out pure white.
a few came out pure black.
but, after playing with the "numbers" i got my beautiful pictures! i can't wait to see how they will turn out when i get photo shop!!
then, i went to the kids first dance...and didn't even use the flash.
[remember...these are straight from my camera...no editing]
i love this picture...miley cyrus was on and even i was dancing lol
he was raising the roof...
and she does the sprinkler...i think i pee'd my pants!
i love hello kitty so i had to take a pic of this sweetie!
the girls relax while we clean up...
[i see so much potential in these un edited photos!]
and tonight. this was the ultimate test.
it's dark in our living room.
check out the difference of the auto and my settings!
[ok, this is not the best picture but what i want you to see is the fact that oh em gee...when it's in the auto mode look how dark it looks! the manual mode the settings were ss1"6 i know that's like uber crazy but i really wanted to see how to NOT use the flash...when i say it was dark i mean DARK, f5.6 iso1600 sooo it's a little blurry because well, i needed a tri pod, let's be honest that ss u need one to take that a pic that slow, lol but still look at how soft and creamy the coloring is...that's what i really wanted to come out of this little exercise. just the coloring. i know it's by no means a perfect pic, lol]
yes! i will be saying NO to auto from now on!
thanks to kristen -- i won't look at photography the same!
go get her e-book! i am so glad i did!
