I thought my guys were fun when they were just out of the toddler phase…4, 6, & 8 year olds. Now they are 7, 9, 11….and it is even better. Sure, each phase has challenges, but there are so many awesome things about kids growing up. These rough and tumble, best friends and arguing brothers make my days surprising and exciting. They are full of energy, life and humor. I like them a lot.
They like when I bring my camera on the trampoline….
all of these were shot at ISO 400, 1/1600, f/2.8
The next three photos make me laugh. They wanted pictures where he was acting like he got hurt. In the middle of his posing, his dad came out and asked a question related to food. Instantly, he stopped to talk about food and then returned to his acting. Food. These boys eat so much.SnapShops began this week, so photography is on my mind a lot (the hows and whys related to photography). I shot all the above images in Manual using my 24-70mm lens. I thought I would take two photos using Auto mode and Shutter Priority using the same shutter speed I used for the Manual shots. Here are what those two modes captured:
SnapShop students often get a little discouraged at first when learning to shoot in Manual and often ask me if it is really worth it to learn. I know I am biased, but I think it is very much worth learning to use your camera in Manual mode. Even if you don’t use Manual all the time, understanding how your camera works, so you can make adjustments when needed is a pretty valuable skill in my book. Again, I am biased, but understanding my camera has opened up an entirely new world for me.
