Photo Tip Friday

Y'know what? Sometimes it's best just to use Auto. After the last year+ of trying to do my best to learn how to shoot/expose manually, this week at the water park, I just planted my camera's shoot mode on the Running Man. And I refuse to feel guilty about it (smirk)! Shooting manually does help me to get really really nice exposures; but, it slows me down a bit, fiddling with settings. And at the water park, I needed to be FAST, or I would have missed these shots:

I don't remember how I found your blog, but I enjoy checking in. Your pictures are wonderful; you do a great job of capturing the "life" in your boys. Blessings. Michelle

Those shots are awesome.

My hubby has a big, bad Nikon. I only understand "auto". ;)

I am an auto girl. All those aperture and fstops make my mind glaze and my brain hurt.

LOVE the pictures! The expressions on their faces are great! Did you go down the slides, too?

Thanks, Michelle :-)

Darcy - Auto certainly has its time and place. And I have all the under- and over-exposed photos to prove it!!

Kat - Y'know, I *totally* would have gone down those slides, but someone had to keep watch over the camera equipment. snort.
