To start, I really just played around with the various auto modes. One of the things I noticed right away is that it was just super easy to capture those little moments. Especially when dealing with a moving target, like this little lady.
In auto, you can choose close up for details like these...this girl lives life to the fullest, mud and all.
I was really happy with the portrait mode, like this snap of the Diva with my Dad.
Or capturing that split second when my older two are actually getting along.
And of course, with kids, one of the best ways to catch every little detail was using the sports/continuous mode.
I just love action shots, like this one of Freckle Girl, going for an October dip in the lake.
Soon, I'll start to play with manual options and maybe take an online class to learn all about aperture and ISO. But in the meantime, I'm looking forward to taking higher quality pictures for the blog!
