I'm turning over a new leaf with photo taking. I've always just stuck my camera on auto and snapped a bazillion photos in different lights and locations until a few came out okay, but now that I have a new camera I'm really trying to learn how it use it properly. I love our new Nikon D90! It takes beautiful photos, particularly due to the 50mm 1.4f lens which lets in lots of light so you can take good photos in low light. Todd's thrilled that I'm finally going beyond auto, so that I'm not so reliant on him to take photos of my quilts. I'd like to do a 'proper' course, but right now I've attended a beginners course put on by a couple of girls from church, and I've watched these online videos - which were brilliant for going through the basics step by step - specific to my camera. I now know about aperture, shutter speed, ISO and white balance. Now I just have to practice so I can think on my feet and get the right thing in focus. Some of these photos were taken by me and some by Todd.
